SURPRISE! SOMEONE REMEMBERED THE CONSTITUTION
Yesterday, I posted a blog that essentially reminded readers that the Supreme Court that voted to give GeeDubya the White House was the same band of bretheren that couldn't be trusted to do what was right and decline to hear the Terri Schaivo case.
For once, it gives me great pleasure to state that the Supreme Court actually remembered and read the U. S. Constitution and remembered how much they supported States' Rights. Their refusal to hear this case (for the fifth time) was a good ol' fashioned pimp slap to the Bush Administration; the GOP thugs attempting to use their own "weapon of mass distraction" to get the heat off that cockroach serving in Congress as Majority Leader, and his foibles; not to mention the truckload of DLC members who trotted back to DC to vote to interfere with a personal family decision.
Now, they want to get revenge on the Court for adhering to the concept of governmental checks-and-balances, by getting rid of the filibuster and pushing through Bush's whack-job judicial nominees.
We can breathe a little easier today - the Supreme Court, despite having Thomas and Scalia gracing its bench, did the right thing. But we can't rest on our laurels for too long - this issue needs to be used for opponents of the DLC members in campaign issues from now until 2006.
It might have been better if the GOP had been allowed to subpeona Terri Schiavo and put her in a room at the Rayburn or Cannon Buildings with a C-Span Camera trained on her, just so the Republicans, along with their Republican-lite DLC buddies could be allowed to stoop to new lows and give new meaning to the phrase "looking foolish".
