Be Careful What You Ask For
Professor William Andersen of the UW School of Law is complaining about politicking in Washington judicial elections. Forgive me for thinking that his principled stand rings a bit hollow in light of the total politicization of the judicial branch embraced by liberals since the 1930s. You reap what you sow. You want judges as the cutting edge of your political agenda, you should expect their branch of government to become politicized. The same thing goes for democrats complaining about the strong executive, big brother, lobbying excesses and bloated government in general. You brought us these problems for your own profit - it seems a bit disingenuous to stand on principle when the beasts you created turn against you.
