IT IS TIME TO CRASH THE PARTY.

not surprising, but…
ugh.
sigh.
From the Alliance for Justice:
John G. Roberts, nominated by President Bush to a seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, has a record of hostility to the rights of women and minorities. He has also taken controversial positions in favor of weakening the separation of church and state and limiting the role of federal courts in protecting the environment. The Alliance for Justice opposes his nomination to the D.C. Circuit….
While working under Presidents Reagan and Bush, Mr. Roberts supported a hard-line, anti-civil rights policy that opposed affirmative action, would have made it nearly impossible for minorities to prove a violation of the Voting Rights Act and would have “resegregated” America’s public schools. He also took strongly anti-choice positions in two Supreme Court cases, one that severely restricted the ability of poor women to gain information about abortion services, and another that took away a key means for women and clinics to combat anti-abortion zealots.

Read the rest of the report here, but warning: it’s bloody, like brains smeared all over the windshield bloody. This dude is an anti-abortion, pro-segregation (!), anti-prisoner’s rights religious zealot/corporate handiman. The fuck.

    Or something. The two links to the pdf aren’t working; perhaps it was the blinding rage.
