Extremist Judicial Nominees

Salon has a new article posted Friday listing the “extremist credentials” of seven Bush judicial nominees. The article’s first complaint:

An assessment of the nominees’ records suggests that all consider government regulation a central problem, while they view private enterprise and property a bedrock constitutional right.

Meanwhile, a document a tad older than the Senate filibuster rules says:

No person shall… be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Would Salon’s editors consider James Madison deserving of a straight up-or-down vote?
