My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.



via Captain's Quarters:

Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame have run into a bit of bad luck in their lawsuit against Dick Cheney, Scooter Libby, Karl Rove, and ten random Republicans. CQ reader Denis K took a peek at the complaint and noticed something that I had missed earlier -- the judge assigned to the case. Wilson and Plame drew Judge John D. Bates -- and a quick glance at his rulings will no doubt have the Left fuming.

For instance, Judge Bates ruled in
January 2005 that Michael Newdow would suffer no harm if the President said a prayer at his inauguration. . . .

If that doesn't get the Democratic Underground in a fury, they may instead recall their anger when Judge Bates told Congress that they had no standing to sue for access to the records of Dick Cheney's energy task force. . . .

And, hell, if that doesn't do it for Wilson supporters, his work as one of
Kenneth Starr's staff during his independent-counsel investigation of Bill Clinton should force them into despair.

With just a little bit of luck, this one will get a summary dismissal with extreme prejudice, and Plame and Wilson can fade back into the shadows where they belong.
