    Yep, if us darn voters weren‘t so stupid, Justice Cady, it‘d be so much easier for you and your fellow radicals to rewrite our laws as y‘all see fit. We need smart fellers like you and Congressman Braley to remind us just how ignorant and unworthy we are, and how much we need to get back to the good ol‘ days when only altruistic personal injury lawyers funded judicial campaigns. Now that them greedy corporations finally got into the act, they‘re crampin‘ your style, and naturally that‘s got you good and riled up. Well take my late mama‘s advice -- rest her soul -- say the Serenity Prayer two or three times, have a stiff drink and get a good night‘s sleep. Everything‘ll seem a little better in the morning.
