"The next nominee should let the political branches make political choices and should have a record of devotion to life and liberty that our Constitution protects," the Kansas Republican [Brownback] said at the hearing held just before the Senate Judiciary Committee approved Roberts on a 13-5 vote.
Brownback said he was satisfied that Roberts understands the limited role of judges --- to rule on the legitimacy of the law without making law...
So which is it, make political decisions or not make law?
I'm currently in the middle of "What's the Matter With Kansas," so I'm not feeling terribly Brownback friendly right now.
I'll let you know when I'm finished if anyone wants to discuss.
