Ah yes, the war on the judiciary continues, led by our old pal Tom DeLay. Here’s his latest bit of stupidity:
“Absolutely. We’ve got Justice Kennedy writing decisions based upon international law, not the Constitution of the United States? That’s just outrageous,” DeLay told Fox News Radio on Tuesday. “And not only that, but he said in session that he does his own research on the Internet? That is just incredibly outrageous.”
No, what is outrageous is someone who claims to be a “strict constructionist” wanting to go against the clear intent of Article III of the Constitution and gut judicial review. And he considers it a bad thing that Kennedy researches on the internet? The two largest databases for legal research, Lexis and Westlaw, are both on the internet. Attorneys and judges use them all the time. Egads, judges doing legal research! Where will it all end? Can we just skip all the pretense and have the media just begin referring to DeLay as the moron in chief?
