Wendy Long Now Writing Stuart Taylor's Columns
Doug Kendall writes today:
In an unbelievable post today, Wendy Long of the ironically-named Judicial Confirmation Network claims that the Supreme Court's bitterly divided 5-4 ruling in Ricci v. DeStefano was actually a 9-0 slap in the face to Judge Sotomayor . . .
But that is what one would expect from Wendy Long. And sadly, now that is what one expects from Stuart Taylor, Jr.. But this is the road Taylor has chosen to travel for a long time. For some reason he is treated as a serious legal journalist - with perches at the National Journal and Newsweek.
Rather than wondering what they are doing embracing blatant judicial activism by the Gang of 5, Taylor and his Limbaughian "Lunatic Fringe" cohorts are too busy disingenuously distorting Justice Ginsburg's dissent in Ricci (just weeks before this same lunatic fringe was complaining that Justice Ginsburg was "endorsing" Judge Sotomayor.) Even Fred Hiatt's crew decried the judicial activism of the Ricci majority, in an editorial that stated the Gang of 5 had "Flunked the Test":
