Nail-biting times for women (Nicole Brodeur, 1/26/06, Seattle Times)

My fingernails are bleeding. I had pretzel nuggets for breakfast. Must be getting close to the Alito confirmation.

For those who wonder why women pace like caged animals every time they hear "Supreme Court" and "nominee," consider the news. Samuel Alito Jr. is reaching for the robe to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

This is the guy who, in his 1985 application to become deputy to then-Attorney General Edwin Meese, wrote that "The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion."

You know, if these folks spent this much time worrying about their moral responsibilities it wouldn't matter who's on the Court.

As Ann Coulter has pointed out, its all about women who do not want to have babies by the men they have sex with.

Ms Coulter, I must beg to differ. It's far easier to use abortion as their sure fire method of birth control.

Being from Seattle, I sometimes come across Nicole Brodeur's column when I am painting or lighting kindling. She's what my grandfather used to call "an imbecile's imbecile."

Is she related to Paul Brodeur?

THE PLAN---- Anon

Sit back and relax.

Let men marry men, women marry women and keep legalized abortion the law of
the land.

In 2 generations there will be no democrats.

I love it when a plan comes together.
