1. Scalia indulges in quackery regarding Cheney, won’t recuse himself:

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia [and] his friend and hunting partner,
Vice President Dick Cheney … went on a duck hunting trip last month,
three weeks after the court agreed to hear a White House appeal in a case
involving
private meetings
of the vice president’s energy task force. Critics said the trip raised
questions about Scalia’s impartiality in the case.

"It did not involve a lawsuit against Dick Cheney as a private individual," Scalia
said … "That’s
all I’m going to say for now. Quack, quack." [2/12/2004]

2. The "independent commission" to investigate the build-up to the
invasion of Iraq has at least two biased members:

John McCain is appointed to the commission and immediately says: "The
president of the United States, I believe, would not manipulate any
kind of information for political gain or otherwise." [2/12/2004]

And: "Laurence Silberman, a retired judge nominated by the Bush administration
as the co-chairman of the commission investigating pre-war intelligence
on Iraq, was involved in a major cover-up during the Reagan era, his critics
alleged yesterday." [2/10/2004]

    Hal, the Scalia/Cheney thing is a huge scandal that hasn’t received a smidgen of press.

    And what else is new?

    I’m constantly amazed at the blantant criminal/unethical acts of the Bush Administration.

    re: the investigating committee – I’m just thankful that Kissinger isn’t chairing it.

    Overall, it would be funny if it weren’t so sad and dangerous.
