Fear Tactics in Topeka

Don't Mess with Kansas... You think judges aren't afraid? How about this....

A majority of state senators, upset that the state's death penalty and school funding laws were overturned by the Kansas Supreme Court, is seeking veto power over future court nominees.

Introduced Wednesday, the resolution was co-sponsored by 28 of the 40 senators, one more than the two-thirds needed to pass a constitutional amendment. If passed by both the Senate and House, it would go before voters in the November 2006 election.

Aren't these the folks committed to the consitution? Wasn't there some strange old doctrine about separation of powers?
