Mr. Speaker, an editorial in yesterday's National Post applauds President Bush for ending the American Bar Association's role in vetting judicial appointments.
The National Post says that this is a good thing because the American Bar Association has become overly political. America's top lawyers, according to the National Post , have committed the deadly sins of endorsing employment initiatives for minorities, of endorsing a woman's right to choose an abortion, terrible, according to the National Post , of endorsing federal funding for the arts and of backing Clinton's failed attempt to bring in public health care; dreadful ideas, according to the National Post .
And if that is not enough, the American Bar Association is further to be condemned for failing to support minimum mandatory sentences and capital punishment.
Well I guess we know where the National Post sits politically. Firmly and absolutely to the right, the American right. National Post ? Yes.
