A character on radio (I think it was Jimmy Durante) used to say, "What a revoltin' development this is."
The headlines the last few days have featured Justice David Prosser seeking recusal from Chief Justice Abrahamson and Justice Ann Walsh Bradley in his disciplinary hearing before the Court. By going public with his demand, he seems to be intensifying the feeling in the state that the court is in danger of becoming a farce. It was Prosser who argued that no Justice can persuade another Justice to recuse even where the Justice has an obvious conflict. Now that his disciplinary hearing is before the court, he is fighting hard to force the chief and the victim of Prosser's physical assault, Ann Walsh Bradley, to step aside, despite his belief regarding the personal right to refuse to recuse.
Justice Prosser was willing to testify for Scott Jensen despite a rule prohibiting judges from being charchter witnesses. Seems like the Justice has two sets of rules. One for him and one for us!
What timing. Mitt speaks to NRA to whip up the base or, as I call them, the lunatics. More guns! Please sir, we want some more!
Poor Mrs. Romney. Raised five boys. Do you think she might have had some help?
