The Body Is Starting to Smell

As feuding over Harriet Miers heats up and people start talking about only Roe, let's remember another Supreme Court outrage: Kelo. The absurdities perpetrated under this decision grow by the day, and Kevin Drum explores one of the best so far, a case of a city siezing someone's land because the landowner hired a developer from out of town! Y'all ain't from around here, are ya? Although, I guess that's the wrong accent since this take place in New Jersey.

The Supreme Court is about more than abortion. No one should forget that. Is Miers the type of person to overturn Kelo? Heck, we never even got a clear one that Roberts is! Hell if we're going to find out with her. And it should be important to everyone.
