The Supreme Court said he’s wrong
Hamdan Beats Bush

There’s nothing I like better than seeing George Bush smacked down.

And, make no mistake about it, yesterday’s Supreme Court decision on Gitmo was a royal smack-down for the Bush man.

It repudiates everything Bush and Cheney have asserted since September 11.

Bush said he could do whatever he wanted to in conducting the war on terror, with no further congressional authority.

The Supreme Court said he’s wrong.

Bush said detainees in the war on terror have no rights.

The Supreme Court said he’s wrong.

Bush said, in the war on terror, the United States is not bound by the Geneva Conventions.

The Supreme Court said he’s wrong.

Bush said we could round up suspects and hold them for years, without a trial, without counsel, without charges being filed against them.

And the Supreme Court said he’s wrong.

What a repudiation of everything George Bush stands for. And what an embarrassment for this pitiful excuse for a president.

He denied over 500 others a fair trial. And yet, in his own fair trial, before his very own, conservative Supreme Court, George Bush lost – to Osama bin Laden’s driver!

O Justice! How sweet it is.

I couldn’t have written a better decision myself.
