It's OK, Your Vote Doesn't Matter

Rod Dreher worries that it wasn't worth it to have voted for Bush twice for the Supreme Court picks. Fortunately neither of his votes mattered, so no harm done. My concern is that Roberts and Alito were placed on the court to support executive power, and that the next time Roe v. Wade comes up for a vote, they will uphold it.

This is based on no more than my deep mistrust of the Bush administration and some of the coy answers that both men gave when up for confirmation.

I can see Alito voting to overturn Roe v. Wade but not Roberts. Judge Roberts was never a movement conservative but more or less a Republican functionary. He knows full well the GOP has benefited from Roe v. Wade (Catholic and Baptist voters abandoning Democrats to support republican candidates) and will not overturn it for that very reason.
