Supreme Court Decisions 

Pat Buchanan is currently the guest on NPR's Here and Now, and the topic is Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers. Buchanan's position is that Miers is in no way qualified to sit on the Supreme Court, and the "moral, cultural and social decisions" that are decided there.

Funny, I was under the impression that the Supreme Court made legal decisions, and that the conservatives are generally in favor of the justices leaving the moral, cultural and social decisions to the legislature, as the elected representatives of the people. I guess that's only when the moral, cultural and social decisions are those on which the justices and the conservative powers disagree.
