We’ve known that the SC is a political institution since FDRs time. Yet, no GOP strategy has been invented to get around Democrat obstinacy in appointing a conservative. We have to appoint a stealth candidate who later turns out to be a lefty because they control the academes and the ABA. Yet the left gets to appoint radicals even Obama’s latest appointments were unopposed and there was no filibuster against them.
Obama admitted that he’d appoint a Souter or a Breyer himself. The list that Obama perused and considered for appointment is a who’s who of liberal jurisprudence, much of it radical. We knew that Sotomayor and Kagan weren’t going to issue legal opinions, but political ones. Yet they get the votes. Why?
Two of their biggest boosters come from “conservative” states of UT and SC, Orrin Grant Hatch and Loveable Lindsey Graham.
