Time to reassess. The Obama campaign to keep Plan B unavailable.

Via Atrios, Irin Carmon at Salon

[District Court Judge Edward Korman] repeatedly slammed his hand down on the table for emphasis, interrupting the government counsel’s every other sentence with assertions like, “You’re just playing games here,” “You’re making an intellectually dishonest argument,” “You’re basically lying,” “This whole thing is a charade,” “I’m entitled to say this is a lot of nonsense, am I not?” and “Contrary to the baloney you were giving me …” He also accused the administration of hypocrisy for opposing voter ID laws but being engaged in the “suppression of the rights of women” with the ID requirement for the drug.

Judges saying things like this is unusual. The Department of Justice and the Obama Administration in general need to re-think how much they want to placate the right. On the Plan B story, at least, they simply look like fools.

Meanwhile, I’d like to buy Judge Korman a drink. After dealing with these liars, I’m sure he needs one.

    I’ve been saying this about the Obama administration for some time.

    Things like this aren’t the results of “oversights”. They’re happening because the President wants them to happen.

      You think they want to look like fools, Stormcrow?

      Politicians are many things, and vain is one of them.

      • That’s exactly it. The DoJ doesn’t care one way or the other about Plan B itself; what they do care about is the setting of a precedent wherein DoJ decisions, no matter how stupid, are easily overturned.
