It wasn’t safe to be between Nancy Pelosi and a microphone when the Supreme Court ruled non-American enemy combatants had the same right to habeas corpus as Americans do, even if they’ve never set foot in this country. She ran out to the cameras faster than the Road Runner *meep-meeping* through a maze of ACME booby-traps.
The SCOTUS was the final word in holding the Bush Administration accountable, she said, without noting that SCOTUS had over tuned a previous SCOTUS decision to arrive at what she wanted. Stare decisis, the buzz word for every SCOTUS nomination hearing, matters not on matters that matter to liberals.
But now, with the Heller case going in favor of liberty, in clear favor of the Constitution, The Joker doesn’t sing the same tune.
Well, they did on the last two accounts, technically. But the reason they did is because those issues weren’t before the court in this case. Heller wasn’t seeking to wander through schools with a pistol, he wanted to keep a gun in his own home without having to call the SWAT team when he need to move it from one room to another. Crazy, right-wing bastard!
See, when a conservative ruling comes down the Justices rule on the case before them, and only the case before them. They don’t go further into other non-related areas of law and impose new rules on everyone. The opinion, brilliantly writing by Justice Scalia, clearly articulates the history of the Second Amendment and its meaning. Hate the decision all you want, Libs, it won’t make any difference. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts.
