O’Connor Speaketh

Let’s hope for the sake of the proles that her voice rings louder than Cassandra’s. Here’s an excerpt from Nina Tottenberg’s coverage of O’Connor’s speech:

I, said O’Connor, am against judicial reforms driven by nakedly partisan reasoning. Pointing to the experiences of developing countries and former communist countries where interference with an independent judiciary has allowed dictatorship to flourish, O’Connor said we must be ever-vigilant against those who would strongarm the judiciary into adopting their preferred policies. It takes a lot of degeneration before a country falls into dictatorship, she said, but we should avoid these ends by avoiding these beginnings.
