Another Lunatic on the Bench

Thanks to the Democratic cave-in on filibusters, Prez Nit Wit, unlike President Clinton, will likely get all of his nominees to the Federal bench confirmed - including some confirmed lunatics like Janice Brown.

"In the heyday of liberal democracy, all roads lead to slavery," she has warned in speeches.

Brown forgets, of course, that it was liberal democracy that freed African Americans from slavery, not the conservatives who embraced the institution and were willing to start a war to preserve it. If not for liberals, Janice Brown might still be property today.

Her friends and supporters say her views of slavery underpin her judicial philosophy. It was her study of that history, they say, combined with her evangelical Christian faith and her self-propelled rise from poverty that led her to abandon the liberal views she learned from her family.

"We discuss things like, 'How did slavery happen?' " said her friend and mentor Steve Merksamer, a lawyer in Sacramento, Calif. "It comes down to the fact that she believes, as I do, that some things are, in fact, right and some things are, in fact, wrong. Segregation - even though the courts had sustained it for a hundred years - was morally indefensible and legally indefensible and yet it was the law of the land," he said. "She brings that philosophy to her legal work."

And, except for liberals, segregation would still be the law of the land. Clearly Brown's "study of history" has been deficient, to say the least.

This woman should not be a judge. It's because of Democratic failures that she is now on the Federal bench for life.
