The Latest Dispatch From The Party Of “No”
Longtime GOP operative and former Reagan attorney general, Ed Meese, has been brought on by The Party of No (TPON) to throw stones at the Sotomayor nomination. This shows that (a) The Republican Party is still in reactive, not proactive, mode, offering nothing of their own to the national debate, and (b) They don’t know how to pick their battles, since Sotomayor will most likely be confirmed. All they’ll try to do is dirty her up, and that won’t help them expand their soiled, white, male tent.
Meese and his old guard cronies will continue the tired old argument about “liberal activist judges.”
From his perch at the conservative Heritage Foundation, the 77-year-old Edwin Meese III has been meeting with a network of right-of-center lawyers, buttonholing Republican senators and preaching the same message he’s been delivering since the 1980s: judges should follow the Constitution and not push a liberal agenda from the bench.
Any problems with pushing a conservative agenda? Not so much. And let’s not forget the biggest act ever of Supreme Court conservative activism: electing George W. Bush president.Click here for reuse options!
