Sidhe, I would take issue with the author of the
article and say that it's the Republicans who are seeking
to burn down the village of democracy. Here's what
Supreme Court Justice Ginsberg had to say today to Ted
Olsen, Bush's lawyer:
"I do not know of any case
where we have impugned a state supreme court in the way
you have. ... We owe the highest respect to the state
court when it says what the state law is."
Dubya and Jeb are turning Florida into the Bananna
Republican state. The Jeb/Republican-controlled legislature
is going to appoint its own slate of electors,
especially if the Florida courts rule against
While the Bushies are crying foul about the recount in
Florida, the Republicans DEMANDED A HAND RECOUNT in New
Mexico and are currently holding up certification
Can you say "hypocrisy"?
>Florida's upcoming legislative action wil
have a bearing on the Florida Supreme Court, just as
surely as the Federal Supreme court case does.
What the Florida Supreme Court did was flat out wrong.
If the US Supreme Court doesn't fix it, the Florida
legislature damn well should.
>But of course in
your bizarre world there's no such thing as checks and
Ahhh.... try and stay with me..
Florida Supreme Court violated that checks and balances
system when they actually *changed* Florida legislation.
They simply can't do that. In addition they managed to
tromp on Federal Election law in the
>When you answer my questions I'll answer yours.
You can't answer the question because nobody is
calling for a recession. You have confused the term with
>does the governor of Florida have anything to
do with governing Florida?

case. Please try and keep up.
upcoming legislative action wil have a bearing on the
Florida Supreme Court, just as surely as the Federal
Supreme court case does. The Florida legislation could
make the the litigation before the Florida Supreme
Court totally moot by choosing electors. But of course
in your bizarre world there's no such thing as
checks and balances, and the three branches of
government work totally in a void and have nothing to do
with each other.
>>I don't. Do you know
what a recession is?
>Oops, you're right!

answer my questions I'll answer yours.

Much more emphasis should be
placed on the questions and comments of the senior
justices who grilled the Gore attorneys very hard.
While I didn't think there was a clear winner based on
the questioning, it was clear that many of the
justices believed that the Florida Supreme Court
overstepped their bounds and some seemed quite put off that
the lower court failed to give proper address to the
>Dubya and Jeb are turning
Florida into the Bananna Republican state.
can this be correct? Gore has never lead in ANY
count. It is GORE that is contesting a valid election
Like Gore and his supporters, you don't seem to
care much about facts.. just results.
I don't think the US Supreme court is (or should)
act here. I just can't see it happening. It is going
to be funny to watch the lefties praising Scalia for
respecting states rights as he rules in their
I'm afraid we are heading for a full blown state
constitutional crisis between the Florida Supreme court and
state legislature. From what I have been reading of the
courts ruling history, it has been a long time coming.
There is a balance of power here and the FL Supreme
court seems to think of themselves as a monolith. It
was brought up by (of all people) Justice Kennedy.
�You say the Florida Legislature now has no role. You
now say this court has no role. That means the
Supreme Court of Florida is it,� Kennedy said.
we are heading down this terrible road, but the
state branches are going to have to knock heads. This
really is where it "must" be resolved.
to get ugly from here folks. As a country, our
character has allowed us to successfully navigated through
these same types of obstacles and roadblocks for over
200 years. But, this year the steering in our vehicle
isn't working all to well and If we fail to get back on
course and resolve this by next Tuesday, I'm afraid the
wheels are going to start falling off.
Your statements and opinions are bullshit. Bush
is the one showing the class in this situation, and
Gore is showing his mongrel-in-the-woodpile heritage.
It's always "my way or the highway" from Gore. What a
lesson to Americans...beware of what you want, for you
may get it...especially you Gore voters.
Yup, the incredibly shrinking Dubya is showing
lots of class. Especially when he denigrates the
Supreme Court of the state whose governor is his brother.
And when Jeb signs into law next week Florida's
Banana Republican legislation for his brother's
electors, defying the will of the people of Florida, that
will be really classy. Do I look forward to
As far as "beware of what you want", that applies to
Bsuh voters too. Everyone beleives we're headed
towards a recession, and if Bush wins the presidency it's
gonna be called a Bush recession, fairly or unfairly.
If Bush is lucky the recession will end early in his
term; otherwise he's a one-termer, just like Poppy.
