Can't Save Him From Himself

Howard Dean in yet another shoe-in-mouth incident. You have to wonder how much Karl Rove is paying this guy. One can only wonder if either a) Dean is so clueless that he is unaware of which judges voted for or against this decision, or b) He knows but he is relying on no one fact-checking him. In either case, he comes off looking, as usual, like a moron. As Udolpho says:

* Is it necessary to point out that the "right-wing" justices all fiercely dissented the Kelo decision? Or that a majority of Republicans (plus a few Democrats) voted in the House to withhold federal funds from local projects that take advantage of this ruling? Or that conservatives in general derided the ruling? Nevertheless Dean's outrageous statements have received practically no coverage outside conservative venues.

Furthermore, how is this Supreme Court "Bush's 'Right-Wing' Supreme Court"? None of the justices on the court were nominated by Bush; it's the same crew that was around when he took office. So, again, either Dean really thinks that the president wields power of the Supreme Court or he thinks no one is paying attention. Well, no one outside traditional media, anyway.
