Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Scalia: "The Election Was Dragged Into The Courts By The Gore People. We Did Not Go Looking For Trouble"...

This is just maddening! While the admin is busy ranting about the Democrats ‘rewriting’ history, they are busy doing just that. Here’s their favorite Justice spewing nonsense about Gore being the cause of the 2000 election having to be settled in the Supreme Court. Funny, you’d think a man with the least bit of legal knowledge would know that a case called ‘Bush v. Gore’ meant that Bush was the plaintiff not Gore. But what do you expect, it is the same ol’ crap they have been dishing out since Dec. 2000;  “Gore is the troublemaker.” “Gore won’t be satisfied by a Florida recount.” “Gore is just a sore loser.” 

You can read a fine analysis of the election, at the link below, by a man no one can accuse of being a ‘squishy liberal’, Vincent Bugliosi. (The prosecutor most famous for bringing down Charlie Manson.)

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says the high court did not inject itself into the 2000 presidential election.

Speaking at the Time Warner Center last night, Scalia said: "The election was dragged into the courts by the Gore people. We did not go looking for trouble."

But he said the court had to take the case.

"The issue was whether Florida's Supreme Court or the United States Supreme Court [would decide the election.] What did you expect us to do? Turn the case down because it wasn't important enough?"

The conservative justice, who grew up in Queens, contended there would have been a difficult transition had the court not stepped in.
