If this is the best her opponents can come up with, Amy Coney Barrett is a lock for the Supreme Court.
Of all the vested interests with an eye on the Barrett confirmation hearings that entered their second day on Tuesday, the abortionists at Planned Parenthood have to be one of the most vigilant, considering their business model is basically built on providing the murderous service leftists are terrified Barretts presence on the court would endanger.
An attack on Barrett from that direction isnt only expected, its practically demanded by the knee-jerk politics of progressives at the moment. What wasnt expected was the astounding ignorance that attack would unveil.
In a Twitter post published Tuesday, Planned Parenthood Action, the political arm of the nations largest abortion provider, decided to imply Barrett is some kind of bigot for quoting John Adams, the second president of the United States and one of the most brilliant of the brilliant minds among the Founding Fathers.
Fun fact: The phrase that Barrett used we are a government of laws, not of men is one that Scalia used often and was also used in Chief Justice Robertss opinion disagreeing that the Constitution protects marriage equality (Obergefell), which Scalia joined, the tweet stated.
Yes, well, Barrett did use the phrase in her opening statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee (CNN has the transcript here).
And Chief Justice John Roberts did use it in dissenting in the Obergefell decision the 2015 ruling that legalized homosexual marriage pretty much on the grounds that then-Justice Anthony Kennedy felt like it (and the courts liberal wing was behaving with its typical lawlessness).
Government of laws
is also one of the most common phrases in American politics. While it was originally coined for the Massachusetts state constitution, according to the Cato Institute, it has applied traditionally to the country as a whole, since it perfectly describes a nation that is dedicated to a society built on laws that apply to all, not the whims of a royal class (or even celebrity elites with huge Twitter followings).

Its tough to tell which is worse: That Planned Parenthood appeared ignorant of a staple of American political discussions, or that it considered belief in the supremacy of law to be somehow disqualifying in a candidate for the highest court in the land.
Either way, the response on social media had to be pure torture for the liberal sacred cow.
