Former longtime NYT Supreme Court correspond, current biweekly Times columnist, and habitual woman-after-my-own-heart Linda Greenhouse, has a column today titled “Let’s Legislate From the Supreme Court Bench” about how very fond movement conservatives became a while ago of legislation from the bench.
She makes the point that legislation from the bench is an absolutely essential component of the Conservative Movement.
I’ve made that point, or tried to, roughly 879 times at AB since I began posting here in 2010. But she’s Linda Greenhouse, and I’m, well, nobody. But at least I’m in good company in recognizing how ridiculously underappreciated—how thoroughly unknown, actually—this critical fact is.
