"O'Connor Saddened by Attacks on Judiciary"

Well, I'm saddened by the Judiciary's attacks on America.

Sandy was in Spokane today. What a day for me to be in Pullman! Darn!

Does she honestly think that the Judiciary has done nothing worthy of criticism? And strong criticism at that? That's why we have free speech in this country. Last I looked at the Bill of Rights, it didn't say anything about members of Congress not being able to criticize activist judges.

We don't get to elect many members of the judiciary, we can't pry them out of office when they do bad things and legislate from the bench, and we get slapped on the hand when we dare to question what they are doing. Sounds like a runaway judiciary to me!
