    Most of the judges who voted for same sex marriage in Iowa have been voted out of office. The only reason why they all weren't voted out is because some of them weren't running. They'll get them next time.

    Not the most articulate argument against judicial activism, but I take her point. Judges don't exist simply to make declarations of law when the people don't vote the way they want them to. That's the reason those three Iowa Supreme Court Justices were ousted.

    Judges have forgotten their function. It is not to legislate from the bench but apply the laws the legislature passed.

    That the population doesn't know this is part of the general dumbing down.

    I would never vote for Bachman because she's a slimy IRS Tax Lawyer and God knows we already have too many Lawyers in Gov't.

    But it seems to me that she's less suited for gov't and more suited for something like TV Show host. She can get people pissed off and talking about subjects but doesn't seem to offer any solutions. Other than talk about her family.

    Am I just being sexist when I say she seems like just a whiny bitch? :confused:
