Hubris -> Agon -> Nemesis

Tragic Progress
I have never seen Dahlia Lithwick as incensed as today. Have any of these jerks in Congress ever taken an LSAT? What the fuck do they (or the constituencies to whom they pander) think laws mean?
While I have nothing more than suspicion to support my fears, in this or a similar case there is going to be some whacko emerge who will take it to the next level - go after another judge or advocate or jury or whatever - and it may take that atrocity to persuade the country that these sops to the insane Right have gone too far. What else can brake them? This is incitement, IMO, and we had better be ready to hold responsible those legislators who stood behind it.
