Stevens: A Radical

From National Review Online:

This Day in Liberal Judicial Activism—April 18 [Ed Whelan]
1990—Dissenting in Osborne v. Ohio, Justices Brennan, Marshall, and Stevens opine that possession of child pornography is protected by the First Amendment. Though unmoored from any plausible meaning of the First Amendment, their position is a logical extension of Justice Marshall’s activist ruling in Stanley v. Georgia (see This Day for
April 7, 1969). And faithless as they are to the actual Constitution and to precedents with which they disagree, liberal judicial activists vigorously apply activist precedents.

NAMBLA is losing a good friend on the Supreme Court with Justice Stevens' pending retirement. But somehow I think that Obama will replace him with somebody they approve of.
