I wonder how large the fees are that these folk are paid. I expect the Bimbosphere relies massively on such sources of income.
Almost all of these Pundits ... curious coincidence ... were opposed to the striking down of Roe versus Wade. In fact, quite vehemently so. One such lady started (literally) writhing to camera. Very hootworthy.
And I did enjoy the Pundit who explained that Roe versus Wade was "a seminal ruling". It's so cheering to get an occasional (sporadic?!? Geddit?) laugh ... even, an occasional piece of almost-sophisticated verbal wit.
But perhaps the ruling should, for decency's sake and in Mixed Company, be renamed "Roe versus W***".
P.S. The only speaker who has mentioned, in my hearing, 'Democracy', is Mr Trump. Can somebody explain to me, a befuddled mere European, why a decision made in the 1970s by a Court consisting of appointees is "settled" for so many fierce people, while the notion that it might be subject to review by democratically elected State legislatures is an outrage? (Not that I have a superstitious regard for 'Democracy' ... my point ... you understand me ... is exclusively ad hominem ... in Locke's sense of that phrase ...)
