It was a good day in the Supreme Court. In a relatively little-noticed decision, the Court held that it violates the First Amendment for a state to elect judges but prohibit judicial candidates from saying anything on any topic that would be relevant to the election. This bodes well, I suppose, for the fate of McCain-Feingold and its effort to make it illegal to criticize incumbents. And the Court rejected the teachers unions’ fanatical effort to keep poor children down. George Will writes: “The opposition to school choice for the poor is the starkest immorality in contemporary politics. It is the defense of the strong (teachers’ unions) and comfortable (the middle class, content with its public schools and fretful that school choice might diminish their schools’ resources and admit poor children to their schools) against the weak and suffering–inner city children.”
