Something Out of Balance

Judge Sam Alito became Justice Sam Alito this week, by a vote of 58 to 42. You may remember that 40 votes would have been sufficient to filibuster his appointment to the Supreme Court indefinitely, although only 25 votes could be garnered for that effort. Liberals seem in a panic over this. Money quote: With these two Robertson-Rove disciples on the Court there may well be greater losses in the decades ahead. “It’s become a contraceptive issue,” Thomas said. “You’re going to be seeing unmarried women being told that they have no access to contraception.”

To quote Dr. Evil, “Um…Riiiight.” Not to be a pessimist about this, but Roe still has 5 votes on the Supreme Court. It’s not going to go away soon, certainly not soon enough for the 1.1 million babies who will be aborted this year in the U.S. In the mean time, the 9th Circuit Court has (once again, this time along with the 2nd Circuit Court in Manhattan) has declared the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act unconstitutional. In other words, perfectly healthy babies two seconds from birth to perfectly healthy mothers can be (and are) legally murdered (oh – and it’s inconsequential that this happens absolutely without the father’s conscent or knowledge, by the way). This is where conservatives stand on the eve of their great political victory.

And how goes the war, if I may ask? Well, let me tell you the tale of two cartoons, cartoon A and cartoon B.
Here, my friends, are the reactions to cartoon A and to cartoon B (this is a pdf file).

(Ok, I could have labeled these “Your Brain” and “Your Brain on Leftist Dogma”, but I feel mellow tonight.)

Ultimately, I do not understand the pessimism of the left when the defeat of evil, though certain, is still so far away. I do not understand their defeatism when they are getting everything they’re asking for, especially from the press.
