Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


The local daily had a good article in Sunday's paper about the perspective of Wisconsin's senators regarding the impending showdown on federal judicial nominations, and the potential nuclear option by Republicans.

What's interesting is it seems many GOP members of Congress believe (wrongly IMHO) the recent decisions by judges on the Schiavo case are going to decrease public confidence in the judicial branch.

In fact, many of the judges who rebuffed the case are conservatives, some of whom were even appointed by President George W. Bush.

So much for the idea that this is an example of that tired old argument of "liberal activist judges" writing law from the bench.
