The stupid at Americablog burns

This NYT article discusses how some are planning to oppose the reelection of judges that held that the gay marriage ban was unconstitutional. There are all sorts of interesting issues afoot here: the tension between substantive justice and democratic process, a vanguard judiciary and democratic legitimacy, and so on.

Americablog's take on this topic so pregnant with interesting subjects?
What part of this is any different than the Soviet Union or any other two-bit dictatorship?

What? It's worth it to read that one again, and then step back and really savor the inanity: yes, we're just like the Soviet Union because we have elections.
