Otherwise we've got another whack-job in the Senate.

"Senator links violence, judges
Cornyn suggests 'political decisions' may be a factor in recent incidents at courthouses

WASHINGTON - In an eyebrow-raising speech on the Senate floor Monday, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn suggested a connection between "political decisions" by some judges and incidents of courthouse violence across the nation."

Nice hunh, talk about blame the victim. And the offenders who are inclined to take out contracts on their judge have obviously been railroaded and have no connections with other criminal enterprises. I think not.

Tom DeLay went even further

He actually made statements that could be interpreted as threats. They were threatening-sounding enough for Senator Lautenberg (D-NJ) to ream him out:

Since Federal judges are appointed for life and not elected, it's a safe bet that DeLay wasn't talking about voting them off the bench. His own consituents are starting to back away; the man is really losing it.
