remedial politics 101-A

Leslie and Tweety are all a-flutter about some of the reasonably hardball questions Sam Alito had to face today, particularly the matter of abortions and Roe v. Wade. Senator Feinstein followed a line of questioning that indicated she was concerned about whether he would help overturn Roe v. Wade. Alito's choice of words seemed to lean towards saying that he would not try to do so. Many pundits are opining that his answer means he would leave Roe as it stands and that there's once again much ado about nothing from the supporters of civil liberties.

Isn't anybody paying attention? Is this strategery stuff that difficult?

The far-right neocon theocratists that presently hold the reins of power are much slicker than that. They are robbing the bank by tunneling into the vault from underground in order to avoid detection until it's too late. They have no desire to take on Roe v. Wade in a face-to-face, mano-a-mano combat.

The plan is to simply relax federal jurisdiction over the matter and leave it to states' rights. When the laws begin to change state by state, they will shrug their heads and tell us they can't interfere.

Thus dies another tiny piece of American liberty.
