That USA Today article on AG Gonzales


USA Today’s account of AG Gonzales’s remarks is so garbled and self-contradictory that it is difficult to believe that it could be an accurate reflection of what Gonzales actually said. In any event, Senate Democrats would reach a new low in politicizing the judiciary if they were to question Roberts about his personal views on abortion. And in order to maintain both the fact and appearance of impartiality, Roberts should adopt the Ginsburg standard—”no hints, no forecasts, no previews”—regarding issues that might come before him.
