5. I bet you're right.
This is where we're really going to start seeing some judicial gymnastics.

3. Here we go. Exactly why they've been lining up there ducks.
Will sit here and hope for support of previous court decision.
But will not be surprised by the SC overturning the decision.

4. Yep, they know they've got four votes locked.
They just need one other Repug appointee to agree.

6. Great quote from James Bopp, attorney for the Repub. party in TX:
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 03:39 PM by lulu in NC
Keeping Delay on the ticket "makes a mockery of our democratic system and denies voters a meaningful choice." Other foot, meet shoe.

7. I dont know
The Fifth Circuit is pretty conservative, more conservative than the Supreme Court, and if they couldnt get them to agree, I'm not sure they will get the Supremes to agree.
