I'm watching Softball with Chris Matthews and Carol Moseley Braun is getting a free hour-long commercial. The Senator just got a question about judicial nominees and she responded that the Democrats in the Senate should be commended for preventing up-down votes on judges because they are "right-wing ideologues".
Now, I hear this a lot - that these judges must be stopped because they are out of the mainstream. Well, if they are so far out of the mainstream, why are a majority of America's elected officials willing to confirm them? Anybody?
