McCain: "Roe v. Wade should be overturned"

I guess the only Republican candidate for president in 2008 for which I had one iota of respect has now lost it...John McCain, Senator from that ever-fair state of Arizona, said in a recent appearance that Roe v. Wade should be overturned. Futhermore, he stated that he would appoint judges, in elected, who "strictly interpret the Constitution of the United States and do not legislate from the bench."

Whoa. Wait a minute, Punchy!

Isn't it a judge's job to interpret not only the Constitution but also other court rulings, as well as laws passed by the Congress? I think anybody who believes that their only job is to interpret the Constitution (and somehow guess what our founding fathers were thinking with all that ambiguous language) is a serious psychopath in need of some shrink time. Where did they get such an idea?

It must have come from the greatest Republican of all time, George W Bush. That's sarcasm, in case you couldn't tell.
