    Since when did the Texas Lawyer become a conduit for polemics rather than analysis? What next, the Tea Party reaction to Brown v. Board of Education? Perhaps the MoveOn Organization's weighty discourses on the U.S. Supreme Court's record of protecting the right to vote against the influence of money? Or we could have have Michelle Bachman and Anthony Wiener write competing essays on the legal and public policy implications of ignorance and hypocrisy. Michelle can title hers "How to run for President without even having a clue." Anthony can opine on the wonders of the world wide web, and how to avoid exposing yourself to ridicule. The federalist society is just another interest group whose primary purpose is blocking appointment of any judicial nominee who does not agree with its revisionist view of the constitution and american history, and advancing the nomination of extreme right judicial activists in the mold of Antonin Scalia rather than true judicial conservatives like Felix Frankfurter and Learned Hand. If you are going to run this tripe at least get someone who can make a better argument than "Greg Abbott is great" and "Ted Cruz may be our next president." GOD SAVE THE REPUBLIC!!!
