A frightening idea

tenco.jpgFrom a message to a conservative e-mail listserv:

I just received a suggestion from [name redacted] that Judge Roy Moore be nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court. What a great idea. Let’s all call President Bush and our congressmen, representatives and senators, supporting this suggestion.

It’s hard to think of a worse candidate. Whatever one thinks of Alito, Roberts, Souter, Scalia, Thomas, Ginsberg, Breyer, whoever — and I disagree with much about the politics Alito, and with various decisions and statements of each of the Justices — at least it’s clear that they all share a basic understanding of how the rule of law operates.

The same cannot be said for Moore.

    Thanks for including that it was from a conservative list-serv. So, is the point of the post to tear down conservative straw men, or to make the utterly trivial point that Roy Moore would be a crummy SCt. Justice? Lame.

    Could you please present your evidence that Judge Roy Moore does not understand the rule of law as you suggest?

    Perhaps I am ignorant regarding this issue.

    Don, are you serious? The whole disobeying-an-official-court-order thing doesn’t bother you? Wow.
