Peculiar Patrick


From “The Hotline”:

Sen. Patrick Leahy (7/21) on his one-on one meeting with Roberts: “It was a very good meeting, where I told him that I’m very concerned about the creditability of the court…I told him I thought the Supreme Court had become a very activist court that has become to predictably right wing in recent years.” Leahy “said it was much to early” to determine how he will vote. Leahy: “Meetings like today’s do not substitute for a full and complete hearing” (Allen, Rutland Herald, 7/21).

Uh. What’s “predictably right wing” about the current Court?
