Update on court stripping-

Eugene Volokh, a UCLA law professor and legal blogger par excellence says the court stripping numbskulls alluded to below may actually undermine their own purpose if their law passes. The money quote:
Of course, it may well be that the bills purpose is more to make a political statement, by highlighting the way liberal judges have interpreted the Establishment Clause to prohibit many kinds of religious references by the government. But voters who support such religious references should realize that, as a purely legal matter, the bill may undermine "under God" instead of safeguarding it.

Read the whole thing for a full explanation. Is there any kind of a political Darwin Award for shooting your ideology in the foot?
