Democrats: They Never Stop, They Never Sleep, They Never Quit

Even when voters kick their sorry rear ends out:

Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday to try and hold on to her leadership spot after voters approved a constitutional amendment that was likely to result in her demotion.

For the past 126 years, the chief justice position has gone to the most senior member of the Supreme Court. Since 1996, that has been Abrahamson. But the amendment approved by voters on Tuesday would instead allow the seven justices to decide who should be chief. The liberal Abrahamson is expected to be voted out by the four-justice conservative majority.


This Abrahamson is a real piece of work; you may recall she was another one of the leftist dragons Wisconsin governor Scott Walker had to face down during his first term. Now the superannuated sore loser is whining that democracy works. And, of course, suing everybody in sight:

Abrahamson, 81, argued in the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Madison that the change should not be applied until after her current term ends in four years or if she leaves before then. To have the selection process change immediately would shorten the 10-year term of office to which Abrahamson was elected as chief justice, she argued, and would therefore violate her constitutional rights to due process and equal protection rights. She also is asking for a temporary restraining order to block the other six justices on the court from taking any action to remove her as chief justice.

The lawsuit names the other members of the court and top state officials charged with implementing the amendment. It was brought on behalf of Abrahamson and a handful of state residents who voted for her.


That’s how Democrats play the game; when you can’t win, work the refs, rile the crowd — anything but lose. The principal reason they hate Walker is that in him they finally met their match.
