@ProfMJCleveland: "Reports that rabid 'Ruth Sent Us' protestors plan to disrupt masses on Mother's Day is why I think the leak is going to backfire. Normal Americans will be disgusted by another summer of violence."

For those who aren't versed in SCOTUS history, Casey v. Planned Parenthood was voted out of conference by a 6-3 vote to overturn Roe. Over the course of several months while opinions were drafted, Justice Souter convinced Justices Kennedy and O'Connor to change their votes.

Justice Souter's idea was to affirm Roe, but create a new framework for reviewing state law restrictions on abortion under a new "undue burden" standard never before adopted for any other federal constitutional right.

Anyone who says the Democrats are the party of women and minorities needs their head thoroughly examined.

Especially if the individual is a woman or a minority.

Returning to the issue of Republicans, though, they should not forgive and forget here. Disney is going to eventually come crawling back, probably arm in arm with the Chamber of Commerce, asking for another handout. When they do, they should be told to pound sand. Republicans should welcome these battles with mega-corporations that seek to inject themselves into public policy, especially on cultural issues.

Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
