These Goddamn Activist Judges

Daily Kos: The Most Activist Judge: Clarence Thomas

Best explanation yet of why theocons are full of shit with their "activist judge!" wailings. Read the entire post to see an actual attempt at qualitatively defining "activist" and how the conservative Supremes fare in such a ranking.

"As the editorial suggests, the entire Republican notion of 'activist judges' is imprecise at best. To that I'd add silly, intellectually lazy, and more than infrequently completely dishonest. The religious right wants desperately to appoint 'activist judges' who reshape laws according to religious conservative preferences. They just don't want anyone else to point that out."
