Hi, KP.

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.

Dave, was not the vote 7-2? There are 7 Republicans on the Court? I didn't know that.

he is really out of touch...

with reality these days.

He is likely still upset that Scalia didn't recuse himself for "socializing" with Cheney on a hunting trip they weren't even in any [position to have conversations on. He didn't see any such necessity for Ginsberg regardless of her support of and for N.O.W. and amazingly she is one of the two who dissented.

I am betting that he doesn't really know the extent of Ginsberg's and Souter's dissent or he would not have put his foot so far into his mouth that even strenuous tap dancing won't be able to shake it loose.

Page 27 of http://wid.ap.org/documents/scotus/040624cheney.pdf is where her dissent begins.

So the Supreme Court is now 7 to 2 Republican?

'Republicans helping their guy'

That's news to me. I thought it was more like 5 to 4.
