When the Bush Admin first proposed this neogothic nightmare courtscape in the first place, I distinctly remember their reassuring statements directly contradicting the current positions they are heralding.

Which isn’t to say he didn’t deserve it, only to point out that there is NO REASON OTHER THAN BOLD FASCISM to extoll the current measures.
