Piers Morgan at least pushes U.S. Supreme Court Justice Scalia a little, but if you’ve ever read the work of Greg Palast, you know it’s patently untrue that George W. Bush would have won the 2000 U.S. Presidential election without the help of Scalia and his conservative cohorts on the Supreme Court bench.
Bush v. Gore
Interested in hearing your ideas about what we haven’t heard yet about the 2000 election. I have my ideas, but looking forward to hearing what you have to say, nine years later:
Almost a century and a half ago, Senator Stephen Douglas told Abraham Lincoln, who had just defeated him for the presidency, “Partisan feeling must yield to patriotism. I’m with you, Mr. President, and God bless you.” Well, in that same spirit, I say to President-Elect Bush that what remains of partisan rancor must now be put aside, and may God bless his stewardship of this country.
