Rovian Political Strategy

"[T]he current climate of hostility to the judiciary cannot be written off as a product of the lunatic fringe," writes Susan Jacoby in an essay at Tom Paine.

"Attacks on 'activist judges'—a phrase that, like 'the elites,' has become a code word for liberals—are regularly issued by Republican officeholders from the White House to state legislatures. The assault on an independent judiciary has always been an integral part of the Rovian political strategy that put President George W. Bush in office."
