Well, they’re closer

Michael Silence writes:

Knox County’s law director will recommend a reference saying the Alabama chief justice “rightfully” displayed the Ten Commandments be stricken from the proposed resolution recognizing God as the foundation of American heritage and government.

Law Director Mike Moyers said the term should not be in the resolution in view of all the courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, that have ruled against the actions by Chief Justice Roy Moore.

“It’s bad form to pass a resolution suggesting the courts don’t know what they are doing,” Moyers said Thursday.

He should recommend they strike the whole resolution. This silly pandering is a waste of resources.

    I guess I always knew that some laws were just theater. Get people worked up and draw distinctions between you and the opposition candidate. It does seems like there’s a lot of it lately. The God resolutions, the partial birth abortion bill (sure to be struck down as unconstitutional), the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Bill (ditto), Bush saying he’ll renew the AW Ban if it’s sent to him knowing the Senate won’t renew it, etc.

    It’s tempting to be cynical about the politicians, but I blame myself for being unsophisticated. It’s silly to take politics at face value. See this:
