With Friends Like These

No wonder the republicans are complaining about "activist" judges. They know full well that even SCOTUS appointments are not beyond the reach of corruption - or at least spurious behavior:
"Nightline" recently reported that the gig had left Justice Scalia plenty of time for tennis, fly-fishing and socializing with seminar participants, some of whom may have business before the Supreme Court. One Federalist Society cocktail reception was sponsored in part by the lobbying and law firm that used to employ Jack Abramoff, Tom DeLay's convicted pal and benefactor for golf trips.
Hmm, the Federalist Society, nice bunch of do gooders, no doubt.

Government at the top isn't that tough a gig

Eisenhower's press secretary would release a summary of what the President did during the week on the weekend, to offset the weekend photos of the President playing golf. If the President did two or three things during the week, that was a lot.

The problem with Bush may be that he doesn't spend enough time out of the office. When he's there, he's thinking up weirdness to inflict on the public.
