Ad Nauseum

If it weren't so scary, it would be funny. Tom "The Hummer" DeLay stepped up his attack on "activist judges" calling Justice Kennedy's use of the internet for research "incredibly outrageous." DeLay told FOX radio:

"Absolutely. We've got Justice Kennedy writing decisions based upon international law, not the Constitution of the United States? That's just outrageous," And not only that, but he said in session that he does his own research on the Internet? That is just incredibly outrageous."

Please... Someone... Anyone... Put this man out of my misery.

And, by the way, the whole Wingnut claim that the decision was based on international law is lying. In Kennedy's own words:
"The opinion of the world community, while not controlling our outcome, does provide respected and significant confirmation for our own conclusions."

DeLay Slams Supreme Court Justice

It should also be noted that along with the Constitution, the "law of nations" is one of the hoops through which U.S. law must jump in order to pass judicial review muster...

Of course not, but that doesn't mean we have to accept it as the way things should be.
