Judicial Intolerance. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), chairman of the Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on the Constitution, made an important address on Friday. I'm afraid it might be overlooked just because it was made on a Friday -- reporters are more interested in weekend plans on that date. The Congressional Record for the 6th is not on-line yet, when it is, I'll link to it. For now, here is a link to a press release from the Senator's office. Nevertheless, this does not set forth the full import of the Senator's statement.

The statement briefly and succintly states why the Massachusetts ruling, the 4-3 ruling, is contrary to the rule of law. Moreover, it sets forth the problem of having an unchecked branch of government. It also demonstrates the fact that the 4 justices who voted that way are "intoleran[t of the] traditions we have recognized in this country..."

More. Here's the full statement in the Congressional Record.
