Judge Roberts and Friendly Fire






Although really, when you think about it, it's hard to characterize anything Ann Coulter does as "friendly." ;-)

Good morning all! As you have guessed taking on Ann Coulter's
latest article. Her latest article is all about how awful John Roberts is. Or how awful she assumes he is, because, just like the rest of us, she doesn't seem to know anything about him.

But naturally, being a cup half empty kind of person, she assumes that President Bush let down her and the Conservative Movement because that's what Republican Presidents do.
Republicans are desperately trying to convince themselves that Roberts will be different because they want to believe Bush wouldn't let us down on the Supreme Court. Somewhere in America a woman is desperately trying to convince herself that her husband won't hit her again because he told her "things are going to be different this time." (And yes, that woman's name is Whitney Houston.)
Reading lines like that last one always make me feel bad for Ann Coulter. Can you imagine how much she must struggle with self-worth if she gets pleasure over writing those kinds of mean spirited attacks? What a sad woman.

But the larger point is this; we don't know what kind of Justice Roberts will be. That makes liberals nervous and distrustful, and it's nice that at least some conservatives are sharing those feelings (even if not for exactly the same reasons).
