Mr. Roberts's Neighborhood

Remember how the American Center for Law and Justice, founded by the radical cleric Pat Robertson, demanded that Bush not appoint a consensus candidate because that would mean compromising with us filthy lefties? Well, this is what the Center says about John G. Roberts:

Whether or not the Senate confirms the President's nomination of John G. Roberts, Jr. to the high court may actually be up to people like you and me. We must stand together and let our voices be heard! We must urge the Senate Judiciary Committee to do its work well - to strongly approve Judge Roberts and pass his nomination on quickly to the full Senate for a vote.

So they like him. Makes me queasy. And this is what Operation Rescue, the group of fanatics that demonstrates outside abortion clinics and worse, says about this nominee:

"A culture of life can never be built as long as Roe v. Wade is the law of the land," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

"We appreciate President Bush being a man of his word by appointing a judge that will respect the Right to Life acknowledged by our nation's founding documents," said Newman. "We pray that Roberts will be swiftly confirmed."

"Our nation has suffered enough under decades of liberal activist judges legislating from the bench," said OR spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger. "After 45 million dead children, we are guardedly optimistic that the confirmation of Judge Roberts will be a step toward restoring protections for the pre-born that were stolen from them in 1973."

"Protections for the pre-born"... What about protections for the pre-dead which would be us who have already been born?

This joy and celebrating tells me that John G. Roberts is every thinking woman's worst nightmare.
Props to R.P.
