This will begin a series of intermittent posts, mostly on the weekends, about crazy or merely moronic statements regarding the federal judiciary. Here is my first offering.
While lamenting the inability of the Senate to get anything done, an apparently serious writer for Firedoglake, Jon Walker, suggested: “I think the grand bargain Washington actually needs is eliminating the filibuster in exchange for an end to lifetime appointments for federal judges.” FDL, Friday May 31, 2013 1:03 pm.
There is some solace in this quick response from one of Mr. Walker’s readers: “Congratulations. You’ve come up with the dumbest idea of the week.” So true.
