What happens to the Supreme Court if McCain is elected….

Talk by Jeffrey Toobin translating for normal people what McCain was saying in code to “the base” and Roe v Wade (John McCain wins – Roe is out).

Cases mentioned:

Roe v Wade – this is [the] one case that Governor Palin also does not like.

Ropper v. Simmons 543 U.S. 551 (2005) – executing minors is “cruel and unusual punishment” prohibited by the Eighth Amendment.

And Biden and Palin on Roe v Wade. At least both Biden and Palin agree there is right to privacy in the constitution (although I think only one understands how that right relates to Roe v Wade, and it is not Palin).

Of course if you want real straight talk on pro-life, here is Mike….

Mike Huckabee on overturning Roe v Wade, as a first step. He will not be president, but at least he still explicitly states what he believes — even if you disagree with it. Makes McCain and Palin look like compromisers with their should be decided by the states viewpoint.

Who would McCain NOT no

McCain sayin he would not have nominated Ginsburg. Breyer, Souter and Stevens that said he voted to confirm Ginsburg. Breyer and Souter (he was not a senator when Justice Stevens was nominated, but he surely would have supported him as well). That said there is a difference between nominating and confirming.

Alito, Roberts he gives thumbs up. Thomas and Scalia ???

Gun Rights upheld the US Supreme Court – a few months ago…

ok… a bit late but I had to wait until I could post videos again (and I will not repeat the video issue again :)

AP Story

And a news report…

… and here is NRA Lifetime member, VP candidate and Alaska Governor Palin on Gun Ownership while talking with “Charlie”. No stalls or stuttering when answering these questions… gun rights is something she has thought about and has a strong opinion about.

And some just plain gun shootin Palin

Sacha Baron Cohen and Law School Skits

Ok I saw these a while ago… some law school comedy/parody of parody (who would have thought AliG would be dated material…).

“Ali G” at Cardoza Law School Part 1

“Ali G” at Cardoza Law School Part 2

“Borat” at Osgoode Law School (not as strong as the Cardoza, but then again not as edited)

Here is Professor Epstein’s commentary on this case adn decision and on takings in general.
