The stupid party welcomes their Evil Overlords

Democrats have decided that unless there is an unexpected development in the weeks ahead, they will not launch a major fight to block the Supreme Court nomination of John G. Roberts Jr., according to legislators, Senate aides and party strategists.

  1. Something like 65% of the United States electorate believe that women should not be forced to be sentient incubators, but the Democratic leadership doesn't think that's worth fighting over because it's just "chick stuff".
  2. Separation of church and state is a quaint relic of the enlightenment, so I can understand why the Democratic leadership doesn't think that a jurist who appears to be implacably opposed to it would be disqualified
  3. Equal pay for men and women? That's a pretty radical idea, so I can see that you'd not want to rock the boat by fussing about it.

Does the Democratic Party think that the bagman will never get around to fulfilling his medieval legal beliefs once he's appointed to the highest court in the land, but will continue to obey the dictats of the B*sh junta? And do they think that the dictats of the B*sh junta will remain at the level of petty institutional looting that the first one engaged in, when Maximum Leader Genius is showing that there are really no depths of depravity that they're unwilling to sink to?

So what the devil are the Democratic leadership thinking? Sic Semper Tyrannus does not tell you to bow down before the tyrant, even if he has a temporary advantage on the battlefield. Perhaps they like losing, and don't want to spoint their streak.
