Apparantly, the Dred Scott reference wasn’t just a gaffe. I’ve seen or heard a couple of times now, including this morning’s “Al Franken Show” that the Dred Scott reference was a not-terribly subtle coded reference to the Pro-Life crowd, who’ve been equating abortion with slavery.
Ah well! Not quite so funny, in that context, although I still think it was a lame and poorly thought on statement.
In any case, if you needed another reason to dislike Bush, just remember the Supreme Court. Anyone want a pool on how many Supreme Court justices retire in the next four years?
Update/6:36pm : I know I’d seen this in a Blog as well — it was mentioned in Daily Kos over the weekend.
