Our Judicial Overlords

Dorian Davis uncorks on the Ninth Circuit, an the judiciary generally:

In the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, it is perfectly legal to finance and train terrorists--and harbor them--but illegal to say the Pledge of Allegiance.

...

A few questions for liberals. 1) Are judges smarter than we are? 2) What makes them smart? 3) Law school? 4) Is Anton Scalia smart? 5) If not, why? 6) If so, then who do you actually trust to make decisions about abortion and gay marriage--voters, or a panel of nine Anton Scalias? 7) Finally, if you preferred the voters to Anton Scalia, then why on earth should the rest of us put our fates in the hands of the Ruth Bader Ginsbergs on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals?


Some may argue that, among judges, there is both a liberal and a conservative bias. There is not. The so-called "conservative bias" is constructionism, a reasonable assumption that the constitution was meant to be read and interpreted at face value. To the contrary, the judiciary's liberal bias assumes that the Founding Fathers encrypted the constitution with secret rights that weren't necessarily written out in black in white.

Warning: He uses the word "p*ppyc*ck," without bowlderizing it, as I have, for the safety of my readers.

Thanks to Alarming News, who also has an update to the Rachel Corrie lawsuit saga -- now they're going after the maker of the bulldozer, Caterpillar.

Because, you know, it was a design defect that a bulldozer weighed more than forty pounds.
