I read this:
As Judge Sotomayor begins her hearings today, I wish her well. Conservatives certainly know how ugly these proceedings can become, and although we may oppose her based on philosophy or jurisprudence, we hope for a vigorous but decent debate. That said, here’s my post from the other day regarding what the Left may do to firefighter Frank Ricci and why her nomination is worth opposing, if only as a loyal opposition. Elections have consequences, but it’s our obligation and privilege, really, to debate activist judges and the rule of law during this process. America needs to have this conversation.
I, too, think we should should have a "vigorous but decent debate".
Let’s have all the issues brought out into the public square and discussed.
The only problem is that when facts are brought up, those who bring them up are often accused of indecency, incivility, unreasonableness… demonizing.
