You know how the Herald always runs WP opinion columns two days after they have been published and long after they have been thoroughly discussed and dissected online?
Well that happened again with this stupid column by former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson.
Gerson -- who helped mislead us into a costly and unnecessary war, who came up with the Orwellian phrase "regime change," who previously had phony vapors over Franken's old jokes -- is now very unhappy over Franken's speech about the Supreme Court to the ACS national convention (what I call the anti-Federalist Society).
It's funny that the Herald published Gerson's dishonest screed about the speech, but never actually covered the speech.
Oh well -- for those who want to evaluate it for yourself, you can see it here.
The best part was the way Gerson got mad over something Franken never said and Gerson just made up:
No, in Franken's view judges should be more like the Committee of Public Safety during the French Revolution -- an unelected group of super-legislators who issue binding verdicts based on their own advanced conceptions of justice and the class warfare.
