Political Judges

So I guess this whole judge affair settles one point: judges are political and not objective and independent, which is sad given the fact that objectivity is the gist of what judging IS. We'll see how it turns out. As for the compromise, the three wingnut judges are in. How is this different from a court of mullahs? Madison would not be impressed.

Being the father of the constitution, I think Madison would be in favor of judges who rule on what the text actually says, not what popular opinion says.

Unfortunately for you that's not what these judges do. They devine their own truth from the bench contrary to the PR from conservatives.
