Parents' Day

Edward Whelan at Bench Memos wrote a few weeks ago about what a radical out-of-the-mainstream leftist Ruth Bader Ginsburg was when President Clinton nominated her for the Supreme Court, and how the Republican-controlled Senate nevertheless confirmed her, 96-3, within 6 weeks of being nominated. Ken Starr (who should also be on the Supreme Court) recently also used her as an example of how a judicial nominee's political beliefs shouldn't be used to block her, and how the recent policy of doing so, especially by the Democrats, is a "radical, radical change".

I don't find the idea of a single "Parent's Day" all that radical. It's certainly not wierd. However, I actually like Mother's Day and Father's Day staying seperate. Yes, every day SHOULD be parent's day, but really, that's hardly the case. Plus, my Mother would murder anyone who took away her one day. But I don't think this makes Ginsberg a radical or anything. I'm also glad to see that Al Franken has become just as reactionary and prone to, ah, mistatements as his old nemesis Rush Limbaugh and his more recent one, Bill O'Reilly.
