And Speaking of Hillary and the Court

Filed under: Democrats,Politics,Supreme Court — acepundit @ 10:34 pm

The two leading Democratic candidates took their typical potshots at the two newest justices with plenty of ambiguous rhetoric about “turning the clock back on civil rights” left for future appearances.

Clinton says she would “appoint well-qualified judges who really respect the Constitution,” and Barack Obama opined, “we need somebody who’s got the empathy to recognize what it’s like to be a young teen-aged mom,” he said.

What Obama is suggesting sounds not so much like an impartial judge for the Supreme Court but some spiky-haired kid on his laptop at Starbucks or in line at a Reel Big Fish concert. They, are like, totally down with authority and The Man.



  1. The Supreme Court should be the finest legal minds. John Roberts qualifies. Barack Obama’s response does not. Obama is a lightweight, and Roberts is a heavyweight. Obama will be a flash in the pan long after Roberts retires.

    I am contacting conservative bloggers around the country since I am one as
    well. I hope this email is not an intrusion.

    Anyway, I would like it very much if you would go to and vote for me for best political blog and best overall blog as well, IF AND ONLY IF you feel my blog is of a high quality. I really think I have a legitimate shot at winning. If you are open to spreading the word, that would be cool as well.

    Thank you.
