15. Not to mention that Ted Olson argued the case, and he's a long time Bush Crime Family associate
The right wingers can't blame this one on "libruls".

BTW, since this Judge is named "Walker", I wonder if he's related to "those" Walkers (Prescott Bush's wife was Dorothy Walker, and his son and grandson were both named after her father, George Herbert Walker)
