Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Dumbass Quote of the Day

From John Yoo, who seems intent on setting a Guiness world record for total lack of self-awareness:

Conservatives should defend the Supreme Court as a place where cases are decided by a faithful application of the Constitution, not personal politics, backgrounds, and feelings. Republican senators will have to conduct thorough questioning in the confirmation hearings to make sure that she will not be a results-oriented voter, voting her emotions and politics rather than the law.

Yeah, cuz that would be crazy and bad. Almost like someone from the Office of Legal Counsel, which is supposed to provide objective advice to the president on the law, instead rubber stamping the president’s wishes with an absurdly reasoned legal memo that tells the president that he is free to do whatever he wants, the law notwithstanding. Results-oriented indeed.
