A Telling Comment
Joe Conason has a particularly telling comment in his latest offering:
Running to the justices who put Bush in the White House makes Forrester look like an utter weenie. He should stand up and fight. And he shouldn’t be too confident that Rehnquist and company will favor him. They may not want historians to record that this court tried to give Republicans control of the Senate as well as the White House.
That is it, in a nutshell- that is how they think. Not in terms of right or wrong, but in terms of winning and losing. Notice the pathology of the 2000 election- the Supremes “gave” Bush the White House. No mention that Gore et. al was wrong. Now they think that is Torricelli is kept on the ballot, somehow that is “giving” the election to Forrester.
Also note how the assumption of the political nature of the court is a forgone conclusion- that is because the Donks admit to packing courts with ideologues. They expect them to be politically motivated. Heya Joe? Shouldn’t the Supremes just settle the issue according to the law?
