Bush has already undermined our civil liberties through the interpretations of his house council and installation of john ashcroft and through various attempts at legislation. I shudder to think that such vile ideology would be institutionalized in a lifetime appointment to the final arbiter of our nation's rights.
Few things get me more riled up than bastardizing our judicial system.
