Of course, conservatives always claim to be against judicial activism. -Michael Kinsley

So the danger of conservative judicial activism has been averted for another year. Stay tuned. -Michael Kinsley

The logic is often far-fetched – how does medical marijuana affect interstate commerce? – and some conservatives would like judges to start throwing out federal laws wholesale on commerce clause grounds. The court once again said no thanks. -Michael Kinsley

It has something to do with the facts and the law and who the judges are. So I think lawyers sometimes exaggerate their role in winning and losing. Lawyers do have a role, and a major role, but they're not the only players in this game. -Floyd Abrams

I hope that they are finding satisfaction. I'm in no way making a judgment. I know it doesn't make me happy. -Randy Harrison

The original judgment of the FBI, the Secret Service, and the CIA was that there were three shots. I don't think that convinced us except as a statement by people, many of them who were familiar with ballistics. This question troubled me greatly. -John Sherman Cooper

I'm not anybody's judge; I don't know what motivates people to do what they do. But I have a lot of admiration for anybody who can start with absolutely nothing and make a little something out of it. -Wilford Brimley

Prejudice and discrimination have always been a big part of my life. When I was 6, I got beat up and called dirty Jew boy because they thought I looked Jewish. -Philip Zimbardo

I elect to stay on the soil of which I was born and on the plot of ground which I have fairly bought and honestly paid for. Don't advise me to leave, and don't add insult to injury by telling me it's for my own good; of that I am to be the judge. -Robert Purvis

One of my good friends is Christian, goes to church every Sunday, very religious. I'm fine with that and I will never judge her. -Amber Tamblyn

I'm the result of upbringing, class, race, gender, social prejudices, and economics. So I'm a victim again. A result. -James Hillman

Now, there are so many movies, so many festivals, and so many awards going on, each judged with each other, like your work is worse than others and that's not fair. How can you tell what's best and what's worst from these awards? We're talking about art. -Javier Bardem

So we need the same strategy, we need young, aggressive judges to be appointed, and that's what the President has done, but getting them through is the challenge. -Jay Alan Sekulow

The president does not have any obligation to make a consensus appointment here. What the president's obligation is, is to pick a judicial conservative, and I believe that's what he's gonna do. -Jay Alan Sekulow

The vote by the Judiciary Committee reflects the fact that John Roberts is an exceptional nominee with a conservative judicial philosophy – a philosophy that represents mainstream America. -Jay Alan Sekulow
