Hey Judges, keep the Constitution out of it!

"I'm tired of these judges who want to follow what the Founding Fathers said and the Constitution. I want judges who have a heart, have an empathy for the teenage mom, the minority, the gay, the disabled. We want them to show empathy. We want them to show compassion." - Sen. Kit Bond (R-MO) on Barack Obama's judicial appointment philosophy.

Uh, first of all, it's a judge's job to apply the Constitution. And empathy is not antithetical to logic. Considering Obama is not opposed to same sex marriage, he would be most likely to appoint judges who feel the same way, therefore showing the utmost empathy for gays by extending equal rights.
