I love Talking Points Memo, but I am afraid I have to strongly disagree with the sentiment expressed in an article today by Nathan Newman:
"By a 5-4 decision, the conservative judicial activists on the Supreme Court violated in the Ricci decision any reasonable notion of state sovereignty....
It is a remarkable thing that conservatives that supposedly object to (a) inflexible federal rules on civil rights; (b) telling states how to spend their own money, and (c) second-guessing elected officials with judicial opinion would violate all three principles in the Ricci firefighter case."
Nathan, Nathan, Nathan....Are you trying to tell us that it is "remarkable" when conservatives turn out to not give a God damn about the sacred principles that they have blabbed on about for years? Are you trying to tell us that it is "remarkable" when it turns out that conservatives will do anything they want, regardless of those so-called principles?
Come on guy, there's a reason why most of us regard the words "conservative" and "hypocrite" to be essentially synonomous.
