Bush Did His Homework

There is no doubt about it, Bush did his homework on this one. Bush's nominee to replace Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court, John G. Roberts Jr., is exactly the kind of candidate Bush was looking for. Roberts is a solid conservative (he definitely leans further right than O'Connor), and he is eminently qualified to serve. His judicial and legal background are strong and solid; there is no hint of extremism. And his work (he has served as a lawyer and argued many cases before the Supreme Court, and has also served as a judge on a U.S. Circuit court of appeals) is thoughtful, intelligent, and solidly based on law - he has managed to avoid any suggestion of personal bias in his arguments. It seems unlikely that Senate Democrats can reasonably block his appointment. And so, Roberts will almost certainly be confirmed as an Associate Justice in September. The balance of the Court will most definitely shift to the right. How this will affect individual rights and civil liberties in this nation remains to be seen.

Well, I reckon it's time to get that move to Canada or Europe sorted out - you know in the new modern America YOUR KIND will never be allowed.

Oh no, they'll route out YOUR KIND and put you in camps.

You are a dangerous, subversive element.

YOUR KIND being 'thinkers' of course.

Not in our America, thank you.
