Choosing sides

John Roberts is no libertarian, but one feels tempted to support him out of disdain for the rhetoric and positions of those trying to trip him up in the Senate.

These, of course, are Senators any libertarian, liberal, or constitutionalist would ordinarily oppose, from war hawk Joe Biden to Feinstein the social-democrat dinosaur. Yes, they're our enemies in the culture war, but we shouldn't let this or the temptation of a false dichotomy fool us into thinking Roberts is on our side, or that this is our fight.
