The Next (Liberal) Political Frontier

Democrats and their allies in the MSM have been searching frantically for an issue that will arouse what they consider to be a complacent populace against Republicans and conservatives in general, and the Bush Administration in particular.

Katrina didn't do it. The war hasn't done it. Fitzmas never happened. And the NSA wiretaps don't seem to be panning out. What to do, what to do?

Ah, ethics -- that's the ticket. And as this piece points out, Democrats have decided to make the ideological composition of the Supreme Court a campaign issue this fall.

So what could be better for the next liberal/Democratic political gambit than levelling ethics charges at a conservative Supreme Court justice? Hmmm.

ABC obliges with this hit piece on Justice Scalia; those in a position to know try to set the record straight.

They just can't help themselves. If there's not even a hint, but anything that can be construed as impropriety by a conservative, they're gonna run with the story.

C'mon, it's Scalia. Is ABC seriously trying to claim that Scalia would judge cases any differently if the Federalist society didn't treat him to junkets? What's he going to do, side with NARAL or PFAW if he didn't get a free tennis game or two?
