Blatant Conservative Activism of the State Supreme Courts 4 Justices, is Apparently not a Crisis. Newspaper blames both sides.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read the headline in the Sunday morning Wisconsin State Journal:

The activism is not unusual? Instead we should blame the messenger, Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson? In the past, such partisanship was more "disguised?"

It's time we dispel the cliche'd myth that there is only one kind of activism, liberal judges. As written at the blog Malcontends:

Press Plays It Dumb: A prominent piece on the cover of Sunday's Wisconsin State Journal authored by a talented journalist, Matthew DeFour, missed the mark … It's difficult and sometimes unethical for members the legal community to state in effect that the four Republican justices of the seven-member Court are corrupt partisans.
The article includes overwhelming proof: Conservative activist Justice Michael Gableman tried to force Justice Crooks off an ethics case against him, saying she lodged "gratuitous personal attacks" and "personal citicisms" against him. Ouch!

Justice David Prosser called the Chief Justice a "total bitch" and that she was the one who was divisive.

No kidding. Those are just a few examples. Yet it's both sides, isn't it?

The time is right that we start fighting back, before it gets worse, if that's even possible.
