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

Cantwell


Just a reminder on this day when the Supremes determined that Congress is smarter than a woman's doctor and Congress should dictate the TYPE of medical treatments women can receive --

Cantwell was one of the Senators who VOTED NOT to filibuster Alito in January 2006 and we now have him joining this awful majority opinion.

Thank you Maria Cantwell for selling women out. We sure didn't send you to DC to do anything that might be difficult.

Hurrah for Justice Ginsberg:
Ginsburg, in a lengthy statement, said "the Court's opinion tolerates, indeed applauds, federal intervention to ban nationwide a procedure found necessary and proper in certain cases by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. For the first time since Roe, the Court blesses a prohibition with no exception protecting a woman's health." She said the federal ban "and the Court's defense of it cannot be understood as anything other than an effort to chip away at a right declared again and again by this Court -- and with increasing comprehension of its centrality to women's lives. A decision of the character the Court makes today should not have staying power."


From Ginsberg's lips to God's ears . . .
