“Judicial Watch: Barking at the Moon?”

by Walter Olson on December 18, 2008

Daniel Libit at Politico (Dec. 17) quotes me in a new piece on Judicial Watch, the more-or-less-conservative activist group that brought disrepute on itself in the Clinton years by advancing litigation (often of highly dubious merit) as a scorched-earth method of politics-by-other-means. Since the departure of eccentric founder Larry Klayman the group has been edging back toward respectability, but the return of Hillary Clinton to the Executive Branch seems to have rekindled a “Pavlovian” impulse to sue first and think later.

Not quite sure what you don’t like about them? On the Clinton appointment issue they are most likely right and since Obama refuses to to the right thing the only way to get the problem coreccted is to litigate it.
