Sen. Jeff Sessions Has The Alabama Sadz

"I think it’s an unhealthy trend that judges feel that they’re somehow reflecting popular opinion when first of all, it’s not popular opinion, and secondly, who are they to be ruling on cases based on how they feel. The attorney general of the state of Alabama has appealed, which I support. And while a number of courts have held the way [the] Alabama court has, others have not, and to me this line of cases represents an activist judiciary. No Congress has ever passed a law or a constitutional amendment that would ever would ever have been thought to have this result. So, I think the proper role of the federal courts is to follow the law as it is, not as they wish it, might wish it to be." - Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), slamming the very judge that he enthusiastically endorsed during her nomination process. (Tipped by JMG reader David)
