Republican Senator Kit Bond introduced Sarah Palin at a rally in Missouri a little while ago, criticizing Barack Obama for wanting judges who empathize with "the gay:"
"Just this past week, we saw what Barack Obama said about judges,” Bond said. “He said, ‘I’m tired of these judges who want to follow what the Founding Fathers said and the Constitution. I want judges who have a heart, have an empathy for the teenage mom, the minority, the gay, the disabled. We want them to show empathy. We want them to show compassion.’”
Bond then seized on Obama’s comments to Joe The Plumber, saying the Democrat wants to redistribute wealth.
“He thinks this country should be a government—not a government of laws, but a government of compassion and empathy, not of laws,” Bond said.
