I'm not going to bother defending him against alarmist hyperbole. Let me know if you have something a bit more substantive.

He was selected by Bush!! GEORGE Bush! I'm surprised you and Scarloti are Bush supporters! (Recognizing your problem is the first step to recovery! :wink: )

So you genuinely believe that anyone associated with George W. Bush is a "rightwing suckup to neo-con hawks bent on turning my country into Iran"? On what grounds?

I don't really find this very funny, Morroskye. What you're doing here is smearing us because our reactions to the Roberts nom are not formulated in a kneejerk, thoughtless, guilt-by-association manner.

What happened to looking at the facts before coming to a conclusion?

What are you talking about?! You're with the mob or you're... um... not! Are you saying you don't want to be with the mob?

Well?! :mob:

Deep Breath. OK. Roberts will be a champion of civil liberties, abortion rights and keeping a leash on warlike administrations. (?!?!) If it has Bush's seal of approval it is no friend of mine. I won't apologize. I'm a socialist so why would you assume I would embrace whomever Bush chooses? Insane! Time to get outta here.

I didn't see anyone in this thread suggest that he would, so who are you arguing with?

So anyone who dares to consider the qualifications of a candidate themselves instead of automatically vigorously opposing any candidate Bush chooses is "embracing" that candidate and supporting Bush? Whatever. :rolleyes:

If ludicrous strawmanning is the best you can come up with, then perhaps it is best that you depart. I am genuinely saddened. I expected much more from you.

Morrowskye, "freethought" ideally means freedom from strong prejudices, hasty judgments, us-vs.-them mentalities, and the like. By freeing our minds from these restrictions, we are most likely to arrive at reasonable conclusions. Perhaps this is the wrong forum for you. You would have a better time at a socialist forum, I speculate.

Sooooo, the gist of the article is that the guy's an unstable, overcompensating closet case?

That approach has little to recommend it beyond the dubious virtue of simplicity.

Prove that Scarlatti and liv are Bush supports and I'll stand on the steps of the state capitol in the middle of a business day, disrobe and do the five knuckle shuffle while singing I'm a Little Teapot. :D

So, um, hey... Is there anything I could prove that would persuade you to do that?
