The Hypocrisy of the Heritage Foundation

•, By Walter E. Block

With the recent retirement announcement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, and the possible upcoming needed replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg (she is 85), this connection will likely prove even more important.

So why aren't right-thinking right-wingers celebrating?  Call it Heritage hypocrisy.
