The BloGlo on Judicial Supremacy: Newt has it right

And what you dont see is the drool pooling on my keyboard as I stare slack-jawed at the monitor.  The Boston Globe, of all publications, would have been the last place short of the NY Times I expected to see an editorial like this.  While Newt's anti-Judiciary rants were seized upon by the liberal press as proof of his arrogant, power-aggrandizing, tradition-defiling extremism, the Globe made the following sober observation:

Not all of Gingrich’s proposals for reining in the courts, such as summoning judges before congressional committees to explain their rulings, may be wise or useful. But his larger point is legitimate and important. Judicial supremacy is eroding America’s democratic values. The balance of federal power needs to be restored.

That is some fair, useful commentary.  The type I never expect to see from the MSM.  

The entire editorial is worth a read.  As is Newt's 54 page position paper (well, maybe a skim).
