“The political processes of the country had worked, admittedly in a rather unusual way, to avoid a serious crisis,” Rehnquist said.
If one takes Rehnquist’s “good-for-the-country” rationale seriously, that means the U.S. Supreme Court was ready to award the presidency to the side most willing to use violence and other anti-democratic means to overturn the will of the voters.

Today was THAT day: ten years ago the Fascistic Supreme 5 decided to end our representative form of government and crown Junior for 8 years. Wearing black is very appropriate. Free speech bought and therefore owned by corporatists; letting the Reich Wing and their Goebbels propaganda machine-media hold us hostage is not.
And inside the Bush aides, after crossing state lines to intimidate those involved in counting the votes. were rioting: pounding on the walls. assaulting people: kicking, punching and otherwise harassing them verbally. They were rewarded for the effort by the Fascistic Supreme 5 and those who agreed to stop the count.
STOP COMPROMISING WITH TRAITORS AND THEIR PROGENY, MR. O. AND STOP ENABLING THEIR RETURN TO POWER.
