Does Tim Pawlenty Think Judicial Radicalism Is the Path To the White House?

Pawlenty’s first mailer to Iowa caucus voters claims that he “appointed the first ever conservative majority on the Minnesota Supreme Court,” and interesting reminder to caucus voters who recently turned out three state supreme court justices at the urging of a Mississippi based hate group.  In the GOP debate this week, Pawlenty suggested that, if elected president, he would appoint justices who are more conservative than the late 19th and earth 20th century justices who immunized sweatshops from the law and upheld segregation.
