Meet the Judicial Confirmation Network

As I skimmed NRO this morning, where they're just as pleased as we are with David Brooks' piece endorsing Michael McConnell, I noticed a great ad by the Judicial Confirmation Network. The banner ad at the top said, "The government can take away your home."

This is clearly a reference to the recent SCOTUS case that decided that the government of New London, Conn. can take away private property using the principle of eminent domain if the plans the government has for it outweight the private benefit, such as commercial development in an economically depressed neighborhood. It's obviously an appeal to emotion, a horrible reasoning error, but still a great ad. Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

There, I've just fulfilled the request of a good friend who inspired me to begin this blog in the first place; a friend who (coincidentally) is now working for JCN.
