No More Reaching Across The Damn Aisle: Reason Number 394

Too many people on the Right are such whack jobs that their twisted interpretation of the bible makes them want to nuke the judicial branch of government entirely.

“Back to the Dark Ages” seems to be the sentiment of people like Michael Schwartz, chief of staff to Oklahoma's GOP Senator Tom Coburn. “I don't want to impeach judges. I want to impale them,” said Schwartz.

Schwartz's comments along with a conservative political candidate calling the judge's final decision in the Terri Schiavo case “...the very definition of state-sponsored terror,” can be read in Max Blumenthal's excellent piece In Contempt of Courts.

Are you willing to reach across the aisle with people like this?
