Senate Republicans Excoriate Thurgood Marshall

30 Jun

Fascinating day in the Elena Kagan confirmation hearing yesterday. I don’t quite get why Republican Senators are busy trying to demonize long-deceased Justice Thurgood Marshall, but there ya go.


Contemporary Republicans love activist judges when they’re activist in favor of corporate interests over the rights of the individual.

    As some reader on DailyKos said the other day…

    Let me see if I have this straight: in the last few days members of the GOP have savagely screwed the unemployed, protected the bankstas, trashed Thurgood Marshall, implied rape and incest is part of God’s plan, defended BP, threatened to either end social security or screw over 20 million plus people who have paid into the system for at least 20 years by making them wait until age 70 to see their benefits, and screwed homeless veterans with children. That about it, or is there more?
