Surrender Monkey Friday: Just Get Over It

This is making Surrendie nuts, and is sure to make the Nutroots even nuttier

People who believe the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision giving the 2000 presidential election to George W. Bush was politically motivated should just get over it, says Justice Antonin Scalia.

Scalia denies that the controversial decision was political and discusses other aspects of his public and private life in a remarkably candid interview with 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl, this Sunday, April 27, at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

“I say nonsense,” Scalia responds to Stahl’s observation that people say the Supreme Court’s decision in Gore v. Bush was based on politics and not justice. “Get over it. It’s so old by now. The principal issue in the case, whether the scheme that the Florida Supreme Court had put together violated the federal Constitution, that wasn’t even close. The vote was seven to two,” he says, referring to the Supreme Court’s decision that the Supreme Court of Florida’s method for recounting ballots was unconstitutional.

Furthermore, says the outspoken conservative justice, it was Al Gore who ultimately put the issue into the courts. “It was Al Gore who made it a judicial question…. We didn’t go looking for trouble. It was he who said, ‘I want this to be decided by the courts,'” says Scalia. “What are we supposed to say — ‘Not important enough?'” he jokes.

Ouch! But, they do not want to move on. They feel very comfortable living in the past, pretending the The Goracle won the election and it was stolen from them by that guy who is too stoooopid to be pResident, but wiley enough to steal the election.

  • Blue Girl, Red State calls it judicial activism. I’ve always wondered why Dems are Blue, instead of commie red. I get it now. They are Blue because they are always depressed.
  • Crooks and Liars, a perfect name for a liberal blog, calls it “an insult to America and the planet.”
  • Hullabaloo, in reference to getting over it, writes “Nev. Er.” Are you surprised?

Be prepared for round 3 of election stealing calls when McCain wins.
