Black liberals, Justice Thomas, and the "victim" metaphor

Black liberals are essentially calling the Justice a hypocrite for analyzing the “high tech lynching” of his confirmation hearing and ...
Justice Thomas: Awesome, not Angry
Anyone who just saw the CBS 60 Minutes piece on Justice Thomas and his memoir, My Grandfather’s Son (due to be released 3 hours from now, if you can find a bookstore open on a Sunday night at midnight) has now ...
NYT and Partisan Attorneys General
My provincial little hometown newspaper — so willfully ignorant of times and places other than the island of Manhattan in 2007 — carries an editorial this morning attacking the rumored choice of Ted Olson for Attorney General:

ABC News will have interview footage ...
Justice Thomas Memoir: Toobin Distortion
As Ed has detailed, one can’t expect much from Jeffrey Toobin in terms of straightforward analysis about the Supreme Court. Toobin is spinning wildly again — this time in anticipation of the Monday release of Justice Thomas’s much-anticipated memoir, ...
Feinstein, Southwick, and the 10-9 Judiciary Vote
Senator Dianne Feinstein’s vote has broken the strongarm of the liberal left on this one. Ed is right, she deserves credit for honesty and decency. But make no mistake: if there were even a shred of evidence that the ...

The Ginsburg Dissent in Carhart
The Federalist Society is sponsoring an unfolding electronic debate analyzing various aspects of the Partial Birth Abortion Act decisions by the Supreme Court.
My own contribution to this debate addressed not only the matters that we have all been discussing — ...
The Far Left Fury on PBA: The Reason Why
The Far Left statements are flying — Edwards, Obama, Planned Parenthood, NARAL — all foaming at the mouth, just because the Court showed a little bit of restraint and respect for democracy. These liberal presidential candidates and pro-abortion extremists know ...
