  • Will on the Ninth Circuit

    George Will, in his most recent column casts some grumpy analysis in the direction of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and echoes part of my own sentiments on this case:

    The panel of three 9th Circuit judges, the left wing of a left-wing court, illustrates the axiom that the pursuit of perfection prevents achievement of the satisfactory.

    And he further provides this amusing observation by McClintock:

    In an interview three hours after the judicial panel ruled, McClintock was characteristically blunt in disdaining the ruling: "We held elections on schedule during the Civil War."

    However, I will note that Will's waxing poetic on the potentiality of a Thatcherite moment in California smacks of being too clever for his own good in trying to fill out a column. Further, his optimism in McClintock is, in my opinion, misplaced.
