Judgifying I don’t like update

A man who can write in one sentence “racial and ethnic quotas should not be allowed and that the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion,” is not a man who only hates judicial activism. It’s been pretty clear that the Administration and Specter are trying to paint this guy as an enigmatic intellectual who could go any way on Roe v Wade, and now that’s fallen apart. I think that’s good, not because I want a Sammydammerung but because we need to stop covering up all these important policy decisions.

On affirmative action btw, make sure to read Ygeslias on why a) affirmative action is probably less useful now than ever before but b) it’s probably the reason we don’t have national race riots like France.
