GOP=American Taliban

If George W. Bush is elected the Constitution will be repealed and the US will become a theocracy, if a New York Times op-ed is to be believed. That’s because he will appoint more Supreme Court justices like Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas (God willing!) that the writer, Adam Cohen, cast as dictatorial, racist, anti-woman, anti-gay fascists.

This kind of fear-mongering on the editorial pages of the “newspaper of record” shows just how desparate the liberals are getting. I think even most conservatives realize that any nominee for the court must get through Senate approvals, and that most of the current pro-abortion friendly court were nominated by other Republican presidents.

The left likes to set up conservatives as caricatures or straw men, whether it’s John Ashcroft or Scalia or Thomas or Bush himself. In their estimation, such men are only a shade different from Hitler or Hussein or bin Laden, and I think they actually begin to believe their own baloney. I take it as a good sign that the left is so fearful; it shows they think they’re losing.
