NOM Frowns on Iowa’s Long Tradition of Courts Ignoring The Will Of Voters

The more times I replay this new National Organization for Marriage (and, ahem, the American Family Association’s IowaForFreedom.com) ad that’s running in Iowa, the more I fall in love with the state’s “activist … liberal, out-of-control judges” and want to move there to vote for ‘em. Is that allowed? Or is that an example of activist voters?

      Pisses me off so hard. This is one of few reasons I’ll be voting this year (since I live in Iowa).

      “Activist judges” is a coded expression meaning “judges who I disagree with who make decsions I’m against.”

      The opposite is a “Heroic Judge.”

      Let’s all keep that distinction in mind!

      Unfortunately it looks like there won’t be any campaign to counteract this ad, since nobody has stepped up. But Iowa voters are usually pretty level-headed, and they understand that you can’t kick judges off the bench just for making decisions you don’t agree with. I hope.
