  •  b/c this isn't what the right wing really wants (none)
    They wanted another Scalia/Thomas foaming-at-the-mouth guy.  They got another Rehnquist, more likely.

    •  the right isnt happy, it doesnt mean shit for us. (4.00)
      Perhaps because of your profession you don't see another pro-business justice on the supreme court as a bad thing.  But for the average american, who is often the receiving end of injustices performed by the corporate interests you defend, this is a colossal defeat.  

      If, under the previous arrangement of justices, valid concepts like immanent domain were mutated to allow private corporations to seize the property of individuals, then what harm will a justice like Roberts help usher in?

      I too worked for a pharm company after i graduated college a year ago.  I worked as a web designer, and after six months i realized that i could no longer use my selfishness, as you have, to rationalize my involvement with this company.

      I don't mean these comments as a personal attack, but because of my populist ideals, i find it hard to agree with a pro-business sympathizer.

    •  But it's exactly what Bush wants, (none)
      Pro-corporate, anti-environment, and anti-abortion conservative.

      So we win because it isn't Judge Roy Moore?


      The guy's wife is the former executive VP of feminists for life, they have two adopted children, and he's a practicing Catholic.  If you think he is going to hear cases involving abortion fairly and objectively, that's great.  But I'll bet you he finds ten to one in favor of restricting the right of choice/privacy versus allowing the right to choose.
