Steve Chapman points an accusing finger at conservative "political abuses" in the firing of attorneys general and screening of Supreme Court interns ("The places that partisans should fear to tread" 6/30/08). Can he be serious that this practice is unknown among liberals? What about the roadblocks placed in the way conservative justices? Isn't "pro-choice" a litmus test for Democrats? And does he really think that Obama, even though he may claim to endorse non-partisan government, will appoint those who disagree with his policies?
