Myth of Liberal Judicial ActivismI've been arguing via email today with a conservative about judicial activism. Of course, he buys the lie that liberal judges are legislating from the bench. No, what liberal judges do is the same thing that conservative judges do -- interpret law. That's the job of a judge.
I have yet to drop my big bomb which is that if you're talking about judicial activists, you can't get more activist than what SCOTUS did in the 2000 presidential election -- and those were conservatives. Who shall rot in hell forever for that fiasco.
