    I'm hoping this represents the first movement of the pendulum the other way.

    It ain't over, dammit! I understand the president is mulling whether to veto the decision or have the CIA fly the prisoners to undisclosed locations in Eastern Europe in the dark of night. And why isn't Dick Cheney returning his phone calls.

    This president doesn't mull, dammit. He acts. Generally with unsurprisingly bad consequences.

    The president can't veto a supreme court decision. I suppose this one would try, though.

    Hell, he may send the Supremes to Gitmo.

    I thought Scalia was a strict constitutionist. Where in the constitution does it say wars should be fought easily?

    I agree with Scalia. I think we suspend the constitution whenever it appears things may be getting dicey.

    I mean, if we arrested everyone who looks a little sketchy, think of all the crimes we'd prevent!
