Do as I say, not as I do, Right?

My favorite part of this comic is the two-headed justice. With the glasses, that makes for eight eyes. Who says justice is blind?

Isn’t it interesting that Justice Stevens is considered to be a liberal, even though he was nominated to the court by a Republican president?

UPDATE: The National Journal analyzed Justice Stevens and says that he started out as fairly conservative. They rank him the 12th most conservative nominee since the FDR era, and put him to the right of Reagan nominees Sandra Day O’Connor and Anthony Kennedy. Stevens himself says that he has remained true to his conservative values over the years, while the rest of the court moved far to the right.

  1. He was nominated just before they decided to Flood the Court with NEO CONs. He was part of the pre Ideological Era. The guy that stepped down so that Sotamayor was appointed by Bush Senior and he was looked upon as a Moderate to Right at the time he was selected and shifted more to the left as time went on. Bush Jr. Realized that to make sure that Justices don’t shift you pick someone that is HARD RIGHT. Obama needs to pick someone that is HARD LEFT!
