  •  Ironic that conservatives say they hate activist (7+ / 0-)

    judges, yet the most activist judges in recent memory are conservative ones.  Overturning laws right and left.

    And Scalia, when gutting the voting rights act, even argued that it's the court's responsibility to gut it because Congress is afraid to (that was the argument he made to rebut the argument that Congress had recently voted to extend the law five more years like 90% to 10% or some huge margin like that).  So the conservative judges explicitly endorse activism and overruling Congress, yet claim they abhor an activist judiciary.  Hypocrites.
