And Speaking of the Judiciary

Today the Supreme Court came down with the Hamdan decision. Not only did Justice Stevens declare the Military Tribunals unconstitutional (why do these people have any Constitutional rights whatsoever?), but he declared them to be protected by the Geneva Convention.

The denial of executive authority was expected, but the granting Geneva Convention rights simply came out of left field. Before now even the most committed leftist would back down when pressed on granting terrorists the status of POW and protection under Geneva Convention rules, but it seems Justice Stevens is even more radical than I imagined. Luckily Justice Kennedy didn't fully join in that portion of the decision so we'll likely be hearing from this issue again.

Don't ever let anybody tell you that we have a conservative court.
