Leahy: Roberts too extreme

Sen., Leahy...called John Roberts "extreme right-wing" as he read from his pre-written comments, likely dating back to the O'Connor retirement. I imagine those comments were written with a ______________ for the name of the nominee, and that blank is now filled in with John Roberts' name.

Anywho, here's Senator Depends, from the AP:
Firing his broadside one day after the release of 5,000 pages of Reagan-era records, Leahy said Roberts' views were "among the most radical being offered by a cadre intent on reversing decades of policies on civil rights, voting rights, women's rights, privacy and access to justice."
Damn...looks like Leaky's got the GOP figured out! Too bad the electorate keeps re-electing such sadistic bastards...if only the "sheeple" knew better! Continuing:
He was sympathetic to prayer in public schools, dismissive of "comparable worth," referred to the "tragedy of abortion" and took a swipe at the Supreme Court for being too willing to hear multiple appeals from death row inmates.

"Those papers that we have paint a picture of John Roberts as an eager and aggressive advocate of policies that are deeply tinged with the ideology of the far right wing of his party, then and now," Leahy said in his statement.
Emphasis mine. It's safe to say that one may infer that Leahy doesn't consider abortion to be a tragedy. Whether pro-choice or pro-life, isn't it a given that anyone lacking in depravity thinks abortion is a tragedy, one way or the other? Well, Leaky thinks that such a mentality is "far right"! And how extreme is it to oppose affirmative action, when the vast majority of Americans oppose it? Typical leftist myopia and detachment.

By the way, reading the story, you'll see that Senator Depends met with Ralph Neas, moonbat leader of the moonbat organization People For The American Way (which, incidentally, are not). Methinks he got his marching orders from said moonbat: "Senator, if you know what's good for you, you'll fight this Roberts guy or we'll take our tinfoil hats elsewhere!" Yes, ol' Ralphie was afraid that Leaky and the Dems' were going to "pull a French" and surrender on the Roberts nomination.
