    Good question. My memory is that Bush v. Gore didn't establish much of anything. I seem to recall that the justices more or less stated that the finding applied only to that one case, with no precendential value.

    Perhaps someone else can add to that thought or correct me if I'm off target.

      I was just being snarky.  The precedent B v G did seem to set was that laws be damned, a judge will do what a judge wants to do.  

      Of course, the Supremes don't seem to have any effective oversight except for the courts that may follow them one day and turn over whatever they set as precedent.  There's no way any of them will ever be impeached.

      You could catch Clarence and his wife getting barrels of money handed to them by Charlie Koch and nothing would ever happen to Clarence.

      Oops, didn't I read something about that a month or so ago ???

      I am here to represent the democratic wing of the Democratic Party. Roar louder!
