Adding to the Chorus
This guy should really be kept far, far, away from the 11th Circuit Court, or any other Federal bench. Signorile’s got a great overview of Pryor’s views. In a nutshell, Pryor’s view is that we need God–the Christian God–everywhere…In schools, courts, federal buildings, your office, your car, and, especially, your bedroom. The “so- called separation of church and state” must be eliminated. And, if you are having sex, stop it. Oh, and women have no choice on the issue of abortion. Gays? “A constitutional right that protects ‘the choice of one’s partner’ and ‘whether and how to connect sexually’ must logically extend to activities like prostitution, adultery, necrophilia, bestiality, possession of child pornography and even incest and pedophilia.” I’m just guessing here, but he’s probably not real big on minorities and women outside of the kitchen.
Given the nominees this administration keeps putting up (Owens, Pryor, Pickering, Estrada), about the only thing that would surprise me–and it wouldn’t surprise me that much–is for Rehnquist to resign and Bush to nominate Ken Starr to the Supreme Court.

P.S. Theocracy is bad for the economy, yet another reason to oppose Pryor.
