Arne BS: A Victory for the Rule of Law in the US (53* d) RE: BS: A Victory for the Rule of Law in the US 30 Jun 06


Kendall:

Warren Burger was appointed to the Supreme Court by Eisenhower. He said it was the worst mistake he ever made.

Ummm, I think you mean Earl Warren. Burger was a Nixon appointee, IIRC.

Richard Bridge:

Principally, it seems to me, the main text of the principal dissenting judgment is so inflammatory and insulting that it will create, I imagine, a de facto bloc of the majority in the present case who will tend to stick together against those who have apparently wilfully insulted them. This is very good news for civilised America.

Clarence Thomas excoriated Justice John Paul Stevens for his "unfamiliarity with the realities of warfare" in his dissenting opinion. ACSBlog notes: "Stevens served in the U.S. Navy from 1942 to 1945, during World War II. Thomas’s official bio, by contrast, contains no experience of military service." (from Think Progress)

Justice Stevens earned a Bronze Star in WWII. The RW loves to tell real military people that they don't know anything about war....

Whatta man, that Thomas guy....

Cheers,
