NYT on Prop 8 proponents' miscalculated withhunt: 'Preposterous'

by Jeremy Hooper

The New York Times editorial board lashes out against those who are witch-hunting Judge Vaughn Walker:

Screen Shot 2011-05-04 At 11.38.41 AmOur justice system relies on trusting members of the nation’s diverse bench to put aside their personal characteristics and abide by their duty of even-handedness. Any other approach would invite foolish and unacceptable results — female judges being kept from hearing rape or sexual discrimination cases, or black judges from hearing cases involving racial bias or civil rights.

Indeed, following the open-ended logic of Proposition 8’s lawyers, it is hard to think who, if anyone, is qualified to rule on this case.

This will backfire on the Prop 8 proponents, of that I have no doubt.
