Read the decision. The court didn't appoint anybody. They made a decision about a technical issue that had the strategic effect of handing Bush Florida. While it may have been a bad decision in more ways than one, it didn't violate the consitution.

Judicial review does not override the the other branches. IT creates the system of checks and balances we are taught about in elementary school. Without it, the executive would have that power as Jefferson wanted and we would have the unbalanced stronge executive that Jefferson, Nixon, Ashcroft, Rove, Cheney and teh dominionists all want.

Is that really what you want?
