More to Like About Roberts
According to NPR, Roberts worked on a case supporting gay rights that went to the Supreme Court and got a Colorado law forbidding gays to file discrimination suits overturned. The left should be all over this, going on every television show, writing columns in every paper, proclaiming what a bold choice Roberts is, how Roberts' nomination is a repudiation of the extreme right, and what a fantastic leader President Bush is for picking him.
C'mon, folks! I said it already once. This is our chance to split the evangelicals and extreme right-wingers from the Republican party and maybe move the discussion back toward the left. The alliance of moderates and the far right is ripe to be torn asunder right now. If we break the alliance between the Republican moderates and the Bob Jones University crowd, the right won't be able to hold the center anymore.
It can be done. Someone in the Democratic party just has to have the courage to make it happen.
