From the Baltimore Sun comes this quote:
"If Roberts votes to overturn Roe, there will be wholesale defections from the GOP, especially among white women," he says. "If he votes to uphold Roe, the conservative base will be in an uproar because this is the first nominee of the post-evangelical era. Either way, there will be a Democratic windfall."
-Thomas F. Schaller, associate professor of political science at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County
I think Professor Schaller makes an excellent point here. The Dems have a big opportunity to break apart the Republican party. If they push the issue hard enough, this could give them the White House in 2008.
Thankfully though, we will still have a Patriot Act. Gitmo will remain and our troops will keep doing their job to bring freedom to Iraq. Oh, but what a shame the folks at the U.S. Agency for International Development won't be able to have their winter formal now.
Unfortunately for Iraqis, the terrorists live among them. This needs to end now. Find the Sunni Muslims and begin forced relocations. If they resist, they pay the consequence.
