That’s never going to be absolute consensus by every American


Katie Couric interviews Biden and Palin on abortion. Transcript here, video below. It’s 4 minutes. Biden is first, which you can skip because he’s boringly sensible and understands the issue and where’s the fun in that. Palin comes in at 2:00, and the part where she can’t think of another Supreme Court decision beyond Roe v Wade is at 3:00, 60 seconds of solid bullshit. “There’s, of course in the great history of America there have been rulings, that’s never going to be absolute consensus by every American.” She did agree with the proposition that there is a right to privacy in the US Constitution, but she doesn’t realize how that conflicts with her position that abortion should be decided at the state level. I don’t think she understands what a “right” is.
