Even More on Kelo

Here is an e-mail that the oh so wise Senator Boxer sent out recently.

As soon as next week, we could be fighting for the future of the Supreme Court. According to the Washington Post, Justice William Rehnquist could retire any time now, setting off the first nomination battle in a decade. George Bush has promised us more ultraconservative activist judges in the mold of Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas.

There is no greater threat to our basic civil rights and civil liberties than a Supreme Court tilted to the extreme. . .

With your help, we will be ready to take back the Senate in 2006, and we will put an end to the right wing campaign to takeover the Supreme Court.


Barbara Boxer

You know, she's right. There is no greater threat to our basic civil rights than a Supreme Court tilted to the extreme. Ironically, Justices Scalia and Thomas proved today that they are on the side fighting against the destruction of our basic rights, like that of private property. I doubt Senator Boxer will retract this though.

EDIT: BTW, Volokh and just about every other legal blog is blowing up about this decision. Check out what they have to say and watch the legal community of the US shit a collective brick.
