While we're on the subject of this weekend's candidate Faithfest, Saddleback Church pastor Rick Warren offered Barack Obama and John McCain an opportunity to bitch about the Supreme Court, asking "Which existing Supreme Court Justices would you not have nominated?"
McCain didn't have to think twice…
"With all due respect, Justice Ginsburg, Justice Breyer, Justice Souter, and Justice Stephens."
This morning Taegan Goddard took the nosy step of comparing that list to McCain's voting record in the Senate…
McCain wasn't a senator when Stevens was nominated, but why did he nevertheless vote to confirm Ginsburg, Breyer and Souter?
I have no idea, but this looks like a blatant attempt to invent controversy where none exists. Seriously, what's the point here? It's not like someone, in a big, overly-hyped television interview, asked McCain a question about which Supreme Court justices he would not have voted to confirm.
I've been searching my newsfeeds for an hour and I don't see any references to anything like that.
Am I missing something?
