Mark Levin: the gift that keeps on giving easy posts 

Thanks to Beth for pointing to this Mark Levin press release in comments,

Levin, also author of the New York Times bestseller on the Supreme Court, Men in Black, sent a letter today to Kennedy with examples of irresponsible and reckless rhetoric that he and others in his party have used to attack the courts and judicial nominees.

Levin added, "Accusing judges or judicial nominees of supporting back alley abortions, being an embarrassment, subverting the popular vote, and being Frankenstein is hit-and-run rhetoric of the worse kind. Kennedy has done enormous and unjustifiable damage to the public's perception of the judiciary's role. I ask that he cease his irresponsible behavior."

Landmark is a public interest law firm founded in 1976, with offices in Kansas City, MO and Leesburg, VA.

Dear Senator Kennedy:

I am deeply concerned that your comments, and those of certain of your colleagues, have helped create an environment of disrespect and hostility for the federal judiciary ...

Teh. I would at this time like to acknowledge I am adopting for my own use a term, "gun nuts with skinny sideburns" from P.J. O'Rourke's essay, Redheaded Eskimo.

Here is my response to Levin's press release: not even gun nuts with skinny sideburns are going to take seriously a press release "Demand[ing] Kennedy Stop Assault on Judiciary" issued by a man who wrote a book titled Men in Black: How the Supreme Court is Destroying America.
