Phil: Charles K’s defense of Rudy struck me as forced and contradictory, particularly as a political defense. He ends his column calling for legislative resolution of the Roe travesty. Yet nothing Rudy said at the debate suggested he had any problem with justices legislating from the bench. That’s apparently why when the other debaters welcomed the idea of Roe being overturned, Rudy merely shrugged his shoulders and said he guesed it would be okay — whichever way the matter were resolved. Never was it more clear that on this particular matter, he just doesn’t get it. You just never got that sense that he regards Roe as bad law.
