the fiercely independent Judge Walker

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 06, 2010

By ruling that there is no rational basis for the traditional definition of marriage, Judge Vaugh Walker earned a flattering profile in today's New York Times. The headline of the story-- which drove home the point that he was a Republican (George W) appointee to the federal bench-- described him as "Conservative Jurist, With Independent Streak." 

Ah, an "independent streak." That's what we're calling it these days?

    One correction, Uncle Di, the idependent Judge Walker was appointed, not by President George W. Bush, but President George H. W. Bush. He's another (as is retired Supreme Court Justice Souter) of Bush 41's very disappointing judicial appointments.
