Today's Giggle

It's supplied by the irresistably partisan OpinionJournal who could find an Evil Librul Plot in Family Circus

I've been wondering how they'd react to the Supreme Court's decision on the Texas Sodomy law and they finally got something posted. Taranto's "Best of the Web" (which never is, but is frequently worth a snicker) tells us:

At the time the court decided Bowers, 24 states had sodomy laws; by yesterday only 13 did. By short-circuiting the political process, which seemed to be moving in the right direction anyway, the Supreme Court took away a little bit of Americans' democratic freedom.
You got that?

By ruling in favor of privacy and, well, freedom, that evil Supreme Court is taking away our liberty.

I wonder if they ever sprain their brains doing these gymnastics?

They go on for a while, but the rest of it is pedantic and not very funny or interesting. I didn't really figure out what it was they were trying to prove, I'm afraid. I got bored and stopped reading, but the last bit I read seemed to be trying to drag either abortion rights or affirmative action or both into it for some indeterminate reason. I think it had to do with the Court being inconsistent but really, once the giggline stops, who cares?
