Specter takes his parting shot at SCOTUS
I never had much use for the guy, but I admit I love that in his farewell speech to the Senate, Sen. Arlen Specter throws the judicial activist card down.
"Ignoring a massive congressional record and reversing recent decisions, Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito repudiated their confirmation testimony given under oath and provided the key votes to permit corporations and unions to secretly pay for political advertising - thus effectively undermining the basic Democratic principle of the power of one person, one vote," said Specter. Chief Justice Roberts promised to just call balls and strikes and then he moved the bases."We tried to tell him that when he was voting to confirm these ideologues for a lifetime appointment. If only he had listened then, he might still have a job.
