Wingnut Judges Get Two Single-Spaced Pages From Obama, Not Three

This is an outrage. On Tuesday Judge Jerry Smith, incensed over President Obama's stated hope that the Supreme Court wouldn't overturn his central domestic achievement, gave the Justice Department a homework assignment. And he was very clear about that assignment. He wanted to know if Obama supports the concept of judicial review, and he wanted the president's position explained in "at least three pages single spaced, no less." Well, the letter is out. Here it is:

Does that look like three pages to you? Half of the first page is pure filler, there's only one paragraph on the last page, and the margins are obviously extra big. This is at most two single-spaced pages.

The arrogance of this administration and its contempt for the rule of law truly know no bounds. I demand a bench warrant for Obama's arrest.
