A Question For Democratic Senate Judiciary Committee Members to Ask Sri Srinivasan If Obama Nominates Him to Fill Scalia’s Seat
Okay, let’s have a show of hands here: How many of you progressives want Obama to nominate a moderate to take Scalia’s seat? Because the Supreme Court should always be comprised only of arch-conservatives and a few moderates. How many want a former prosecutor, on the theory that the federal bench does not already have enough former prosecutors, and because the Supreme Court is just toooo pro-non-white-collar criminal defendant and tooo favorable to civil rights plaintiffs involved in the criminal-justice system?
What exactly is Clinton proposing that would end racism, sexism, and discrimination against the L.G.B.T. community? Seriously. What proposals of hers is she claiming would DO THAT?

    So here’s my thing with GMOs, What’s the first “Oops.”? Better Living Through Chemistry has given us plenty of good things but it also gave us DDT and thalidomide. Nuclear power gives us CO2-emissions-free energy but it also gave us Chernobyl and Fukushima. There hasn’t been a serious GMO “Oops.” yet, has there? What’s the first one going to be? Beyond the first one, convince me that plausible big mistakes are recoverable. I’m a fan of the Precautionary Principle.
