Still more on the AG opinion about Kaine's executive order

The Norfolk paper editorializes here that the McDonnell opinion is no good because (a) the AG did not say that discrimination is a bad thing, and (b) the AG knocks down straw men by concluding the Governor's executive order cannot extend farther than anyone would have thought it does anyway.

So, the Attorney General is now criticized because he did not include politics in his legal analysis, and criticized also because his conclusions about the limitations on the proper scope of the Governor's executive order are too obviously correct, and therefore should not have been mentioned in his opinion.
