It’s by now a truism that on judicial appointments Senate Democrats are tools of such groups as People for the American Way and the Alliance for Justice. But it should also be remembered that such organs as the New York Times are willing tools of these groups as well.
Who does the Times give the last word to in its writeup today of the Roberts swearing in? To Nan Aron, president of Alliance for Justice. Calling the day disappointing, she closes the Times story with this warning: “He’s been sworn in; he’s chief justice. We have a period of calm before the next storm.”
Meaning, watch out!
Separately, the Times will no doubt blame the rising incidence of storms in our public life to the Bush Administration’s failure to sign on to the Kyoto Protocol.
