Carol Platt Liebau: Rove is Back

Rove is Back

Karl Rove offered a spirited defense of the proper function of the judiciary in this speech.

One sentence in particular caught my interest: The difficulty for those who do not anchor judicial decision in the words and meaning of the Constitution is that those decisions are anchored in nothing at all.

It struck me that Rove's point here is analogous to that made by those who argue that morality cannot be detached from a belief in God. For without God, speaking through a holy text, "moral" decisions are rooted in nothing more than a set of ever-shifting preferences and trends -- based on nothing more than our own human, subjective and flawed decisions.

Since we are back on the Plame matter...

Carol, any word on the clarifications you should issue on both the bogus American Thinker article and the Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely's "Wilson outed his wife" bull puckey?
