Not restraint and sanity -- Republicans helping their guy (whom they selected) cover up his misdeeds, but it's not unexpected. Actually, they decided not to decide, but by doing so made sure the truth won't out until after the election, when it'll be hopefully be purely academic. Luckily, there are now enough other Bush-Cheney missteps and misdeeds that this one no longer really matters for the election -- though the high gas prices we're all complaining about and suffering from are a result of the meetings in question.

Finally! A little restraint and sanity in the courts. They actually seem concerned about Constitutional encroachments.
The Supreme Court protected the Bush administration Thursday from having to reveal potentially embarrassing details about Vice President **** Cheney's energy task force until after the election, sending the case back to a lower court and noting a "paramount necessity of protecting the executive branch from vexatious litigation."
