In their debate last night, freshman Rep. John Adler (D-NJ) asked former Philadelphia Eagle Jon Runyan (R) for “an example from the last 10 or 15 years of a Supreme Court decision in which you strongly disagree?”

Runyan’s response: Dred Scott. Watch.

Hey, given the position of many tea partiers this year, I’m just glad he agrees Dred Scott was wrongly decided.
