Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Justice Delayed is....pretty much par for the course

From the lovely and talented Blognonymous, the Bush Administration and its' pet activist judges remove a federal judge who had the temerity to suggest that maybe, just maybe, the Federal government should keep its' treaty obligations to Indian Country.

Thanks for the link. The thing that burns me about the case is that most pundits who've looked at it, think that Lamberth is right on the mark. "Lost his objectivity..." Bullsh*t!

"Objectivity" is only lost when someone appears to listen in the slightest to arguments put forward by Native Americans. When the Supremes recently threw out an Oneida land claim in New York because they "waited too long to file" (never mind that the courts had been closed to them for over 100 years and they weren't even considered US Citizens until 1924), I notice no one questioned SCOTUS' "objectivity."
