Somebody left the door open and the wrong dogs came home.

In today's Parade magazine Justice Sandra Day O'Connor has an article entitled "How to Save Our Courts."

She's focusing of course on the influence of money and political influence in judicial elections which she feels leads to unqualified, overly political judges.

Of course she doesn't mentioned the elephant in the room: federal judges appointed by the president for political reasons who are just as unqualified and overly political as the elected lower-court judges she's railing against.

Why would she leave that part out? I suspect it has something to with the fact she is one of the five people personally responsible for that president and, by extension, those horrible federal judges.

You want to fix our courts? Let's begin by putting a President with above-room-temperature I.Q. in office. Until then maybe you ought to keep your advice to yourself, mkay?

I'd love non-lifetime limits on those clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right.

Ironic words from a Supreme Court Justice responsible for the political appointment of an under-qualified President. History will not soon forget of forgive.

Perhaps we can impeach some judges, although I think that's a bad president.

On the federal level we just need the Senate to do their damn job and not act as a presidential rubber stamp.


Yep. You see a lot of these former Bushistas trying to reform their reputation. They should of worried about that when they were enabling the jerk.

You can't blame O'Connor for writing a politically correct article. If a right-wing justice had written about the need for more GOP sponsored candidates, you would find that distasteful as well.
