I wouldn't read too much into this; Kennedy has made these types of comments before.
If anything, it may be an indication he's getting tired of all the politics and is preparing to step down.

He is SO right!!!
Every time I hear some fool screaming and crying about "activist judges," I marvel at the misplaced rage.
The simple solution to the alleged "activist judge" problem is to not give them the chance to rule on something in the first place!!
The only reason a judge ever gets to decide on a piece of legislation is when the politicians aren't doing their jobs. If our elected officials and idiot voters would quit voting in unconstitutional laws that harm people, we wouldn't have this problem to begin with, would we??
Or if our politicians listened to ALL their constituents, instead of just the wealthy loud ones, and used their head to make reasonable and fair decisions, that might work, too!!
But what are odds?? Can odds be stated in negative numbers?
