Sad commentary on the times

is when someone who is "merely" a right-wing pro-business Federalist Society stalwart, like Supreme Court nomineee Bob Roberts, seems downright sane and middle-of-the-road compared to raving religious lunatics that Bush *could* have nominated, like Judge Roy Moore. Roberts is more of a Goldwater/George H.W. Bush Republican rather than a raving lunatic like Roy Moore or a moron like George W. Bush. It's ironic that this makes him almost a leftist in today's America...

  1. Roberts has an appalling level of deference to the powers of the presidency and an equally disconcerting disregard for the rights of individuals against corporate power. The first matter means that he couldn't have been mainstream in 1914, even if the second points in that direction. Hmmm, a corporate statist -- that's a fascist. Has that become mainstream in modern America?


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
