'The Judiciary is Out of Control' (But Vote Our Judges In)

In a 12-page polemic delivered to his followers, James Dobson declares the third branch of our government - the judiciary - to be out of control. He then attempts to make the case that federal courts, below the Supreme Court, are not specifically required by the Constitution. Therefore we can get get rid of those "troublesome" courts such as the "Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals" in San Francisco. And then, at the end there is a plea to send money to remove the filibuster in the Senate.

So basically the Republican 'argument' can be reduced to this:

Get rid of the judiciary, except for our judges.

Dobson may have a tough time getting into Heaven after all - he looks like he will be a permanent resident of La-La Land.
