Bad Cop:


Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.), who, as Democratic whip, engineered his party??¢â???¬â???¢s judicial filibusters in order to appease pro-abortion groups??¢â???¬ ¦quot;and whom the Washington Post nonetheless insists on calling ??¢â???¬?????an anti-abortion lawmaker??¢â???¬ ??¢â???¬ ¦quot;played bad cop to Leahy??¢â???¬â???¢s good cop on the Roberts confirmation. ??¢â???¬?????I must resolve my doubts in favor of the American people whose rights would be in jeopardy if John Roberts turns out to be the wrong person for the job,??¢â???¬  said Reid. Presumably, among the ??¢â???¬?????rights??¢â???¬  Reid worries Roberts could jeopardize is the ??¢â???¬?????right??¢â???¬  to abortion, which Reid supposedly opposes.
