A Supreme Court justice who is worth a damn

Of course, he's on the Washington State Supreme Court, but you take what you can get. From the Seattle Times:

Richard Sanders, a justice on the Washington State Supreme Court, has never been one to shy from controversy or blunt language. And last week, as he sat at a Federalist Society dinner and listened to Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Sanders reached his tipping point.

After listening to Mukasey defend the Bush administration's counterterrorism policies — its detainment practices at Guantánamo Bay, its interpretation of the Geneva Conventions' reach — Sanders stood and shouted "Tyrant! You are a tyrant!"

Can we get this libertarian jurist up to the big leagues?

Excellent! It crossed my mind that Mukasey passed out because of the stress of having to justify what he knew was completely unjustifiable.

Are you sure the Wahsington supreme court Justice is a libertarian or just a foaming at the mouth liberal?
