Mystery solved

From Townhall: “Ideology 1, Law 0: Another strange decision

Who is Anna Diggs Taylor and what does she have against national security?

The answer to the first question is: a U.S. district judge in Detroit. The answer to the second is as mysterious as the decision she handed down Thursday.
Here’s the answer from today’s NY Times – “Conflict of interest is raised in NSA ruling”:

The federal judge who ruled last week that President Bush’s eavesdropping program was unconstitutional is a trustee and an officer of a group that has given at least $125,000 to the American Civil Liberties Union in Michigan, a watchdog group said Tuesday.
Taylor’s association with the ACLU may not have been a cause for disqualification from the case, but legal ethicists agree she should have disclosed the connection. Frankly, I don’t see how a trustee for the ACLU could have seen herself an unbiased arbiter of “ACLU vs. NSA.”

So, anonymous now admits that the Left had it wrong with Scalia? At least some good has come out of this idiot ruling.

More good than you understand. There'll be quite a few more "idiot rulings" between now and 2008. And plenty of followup "idiot affirmations."

The game is over, haven't you realized it? If not, you wouldn't be the only one. Just look how confused Mr. Capital, Political Capital is. Sitting there with Baltic Avenue, wondering where his Monopoly went.

Wanna put some money on it? I'm willing to give you 10-1 that in 2008, you'll still be waiting for that pony you didn't get for Fitzmas.
