Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Judicial matters

This article suggests that Anthony Kennedy is "evolving" in a leftward direction, which makes the O’Connor replacement all the more important.

This article indicates that the filibuster deal may make it difficult for liberals effectively to resist any Bush nominee, though they may try.

And here’s my nomination for the least well-informed statement of the weekend, by Sen. Charles Shumer:

"[T]he courts have been the protectors of individual rights since the Republic was founded."

Someone remind the good Senator about Dred Scott, Plessy v. Ferguson, and Buck v. Bell, to name just a few. Send him a copy of The Federalist Papers.

Eminent Domain


As usual Schumer is totally clueless and just spewing bilge.
