Judge Dred Scott

This is ancient history as far as the 24 hour news cycle goes, but I find it very interesting. In the second debate, Bush mentioned the Dred Scott decision. I just shrugged it off as the only bad Supreme Court decision the moron could remember.

Thanks to Jake at LMB, I learned that it was actually a coded message to the anti-abortion crowd. Although I fear the cloak and dagger pandering might be lost on them, since they are dumb enough to believe a pile of goo that doesn’t have a nervous system is the same thing as you or me.

Speaking of morons, Low Culture has some excellent rebuttals to quotes made by people who are still undecided after all three debates.
