QOTD: "The left went ballistic [after the ruling]. They immediately accused Judge Vinson of judicial activism, which translated from the original liberal language means they disagreed with him and lost.

Conservatives have long complained about activist liberal judges, but being an activist judge is about expanding a ruling beyond the limits of the Constitution. Roe v. Wade is often cited as an example of judicial activism. Conservatives claim that those justices in 1973 created a new law out of thin air. Liberals claim that the "right to privacy" merely resulted from a new interpretation of existing law. The matter remains unsettled 38 years later, and judicial activism is still used as a pejorative to describe judges who legislate from the bench.

...those who remove their partisan blinders would see that Judge Vinson was engaging in the exact opposite of judicial activism. His ruling was the epitome of judicial restraint. Strict constructionists adhere to such restraint, while those believing in the unprovable notion of an evolving Constitution are exactly what judicial activism is all about. " --Eric Golub
