I can, and do appreciate that in 2000 and 2004 most americans were not saying to themselves,
What if the NeoCons put total Wack Jobs on The US Supreme Court Bench as Judicial Activists Bent Upon Ending Constitutional Safe Guards?I mean, trust me, I can understand, the market was doing so well, and things were ever so rosey, and there were so many other issues to deal with.
So the gooder news is that we can only hope that the Justices are Still mostly sane - since it is going to be very interesting as they keep moving down the road towards removing Miranda, and implementing a Legal Support for the President's Signing Statement on Terrorism, and the other parts of the Death of The FISA system. Made all the more unpleasant, as the power shifts from the neutral non-partisan political position of being used against Enemies Overseas, and is sucked into the miscellaneous tools of the Smear Mongers as they shift into High Gear As Fear MONGERS!
What would the nation be like if Karl Rove had the Courage Of His Convictions to actually send in a hit squad after Ambassador Wilson's Wife, to send him a 'message' - as a part of a 'no knock entry' - you know, strictly legally sanctioned clean wet work....
Be Seeing You!
