Re: “Impartiality of Supreme Court smothered by politics” (TNT, 4-5).

When I read this commentary by Maureen Dowd (while waiting in an office for an appointment), it reminded me why I haven’t subscribed to a newspaper for three decades. Dowd is just one of the “talking heads” who is tunnel-visioned and repeats what most of the news media and TV commenters say.

To them, anything that deviates from their liberal, politically correct view is politics of the wrong sort. If she were to take the blinders off, she would realize that most of what is going on in Washington, D.C., is politics. She must not know that 73 percent of Americans want the health care law repealed. They know that parts of it are unconstitutional, and they are sick and tired of losing their personal freedoms.

The bulk of her article is simply rehashing the accusations and statements that comes from those who follow the leading of Saul Alinsky’s socialist workbook, which is something else the majority of Americans abhor. Thank God for the Supreme Court, or else we would definitely have a dictatorship in the USA.
