Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

Harriet Miers & Griswald

Sen. Arlen Specter said that during his conversation with Harriet Miers, she told him that she believed that the Constitution does grant us a right to privacy. Also, she said she supports the Griswold v. CT decision, which was based on this right to privacy and which paved the way for the Roe v Wade decision.

The next day Miers denied saying that.

A lot of pundants are commenting on how Spector got confused but I have another theory: She didn't know that Griswold v. CT was based on the right to privacy and paved the way for the Roe v Wade decision when she spoke to Spector. When Spector made those statements to the press, her Dobson-like friends probably blanched in horror and quickly informed her of her faux pas.
