William H. Pryor, Alabama's attorney general, who has gained prominence as an outspoken opponent of legalized abortion and as an advocate for a greater Christian influence in government, told skeptical Democrats on the Judiciary Committee today that his personal views would have no bearing on his performance if he is confirmed as a federal judge.Dontcha love it when judges say this?
It's not as if we haven't seen judgments created out of personal bias a million times. (To cite just one example: Bush v. Gore.)
Furthermore, the Bushies nominated this cretin for the obvious reason that he will allow his biases to color his decisions.
