Kinsley on Abortion Politics

On Slate today, Michael Kinsley has this piece, which eloquently summarizes why the left is insincere about wanting to protect Supreme Court precedents as a rule, why the right is insincere about not wanting to use abortion as a litmus test for judges, and how we don't really talk about complex issues in this country -- we set up a kind of performance-art system in which we talk at length about how and why we're not talking about them.
