There is a story about a little girl who was an optimist. The girl wanted a pony for Christmas and was confident she would get one. Her parents, thinking her optimism was so extreme as to be unhealthy, decided to cure her. On Christmas morning the little girl went outside to find a huge pile of manure with a bow on it. The girl grabbed a shovel and started digging frantically. When asked what she was doing, she replied: “with all this manure, there’s sure to be a pony here somewhere.”
I was reminded of that story of irrational optimism upon receipt today of Orly Taitz’ latest media blaster email, the title of which is:
Justice Anthony Kennedy in the Supreme Court of the U.S. is set to rule any day on Noonan, Judd, MacLeran v Bowen filed December 11, 2012, 6 days before the electoral college meeting
I don’t know why it takes 6 days for her selected articles to appear in my mailbox, but this one from December 13 is particularly appropriate, now that the State of California has already certified and sent in its 55 electoral votes for Barack Obama.
Orly is right, though. Justice Kennedy was anxious to review the case.
