With a piece in the Wall Street Journal titled “Lay Off Our Judiciary,” Ted Olson just assured himself membership to the RINO bad Republicans club. Welcome aboard, Mr. Solicitor General:
“A prominent member of the Senate leadership recently described a Supreme Court justice as ‘a disgrace.’ An equally prominent member of the leadership of the House of Representatives on the other side of the political aisle has characterized another justice’s approach to adjudication as ‘incredibly outrageous.’
These excoriations follow other examples of personalized attacks on members of the judiciary by senior political figures. So it is time to take a deep breath, step back, and inject a little perspective into the recent heated rhetoric about judges and the courts. We might start by getting a firm grip on the reality that our independent judiciary is the most respected branch of our government, and the envy of the world. … We expect dignity, wisdom, decency, civility, integrity and restraint from our judges. It is time to exercise those same characteristics in our dealings with, and commentary on, those same judges — from their appointment and confirmation, to their decision-making once they take office.”
Are some of you starting to recognize how egregious these attacks by DeLay et. al are and how bad they are for the country?
