    That article is simply an attempt to distort their position and create a false moderate position on the issue.  By overstating the usual conservative case he manages to say that "Rehnquist, Scalia, and Thomas" take the moderate position on the abortion issue.

    Interesting how the three members at the right edge of the court are now our moderates rather that Kennedy and O'Connor.  Way to stretch the definition so far out of recognition that it is useless.  They are claiming that they want more than they ever hope to accomplish in order to claim a compromise position in the end.

    In a way it shows that the conservatives realise they are apporaching this contest from a position of weakness or at least weaker than they would like.  The majority of America does not want to see the Supreme Court move to the right (or to the lest for that matter just enough of us want it to stay the same), and the President wants to replace a moderate with a Right Wing Activist who routinely hands down ruling far to the right of O'Connor.  How do they hope their stumbling president to get that through redefine the extreme  right judicial position as moderate and suddenly Bush can't appoint anything but...

    ...in the name of a totalitarian ideology that hates freedom, rejects tolerance, and despises all dissent
