POLITICIZING THE SUPREME COURT, PROGRESSIVE STYLE: In the debate between Massachusetts U.S. Senator Scott Brown and his Democrat challenger, progressive poster girl Elizabeth Warren, Scott was asked to name his “model” U.S. Supreme Court Justice. Brown responded that Justice Antonin Scalia was “very good,” a choice that immediately drew respectful boos from the oh-so-tolerant progressives/liberals in the audience.
Elizabeth Warren wasted no time capitalizing on Scott’s selection, tweeting that Scalia is “adamantly opposed to Roe v. Wade” (the abortion decision). Ah, there those progressives go again: Not-so-subtly warning us females that we’d better watch our lady parts!
Oh, and why is it okay for progressive leaders like Warren to politicize the Supreme Court while others of the same ilk– e.g., her Harvard Law colleague Laurence Tribe–go around condemning (loudly) anything they perceive as politicization of the Supreme Court? Can you say, “hypocrisy”?
