The Supremes smackdown the King

Will the court save us from King George? Sullivan thinks it might. Will King George even listen? He seems to be fine ignoring Congress. Let’s hope the other branch has a little more luck.

You can read more about it here. Scalia, Thomas, and Alito dissented, backing the president’s unchecked power. No surprises there. Let’s see if they give Democratic executives the same deference. Chief justice Roberts was sidelined because it was one of his rulings (when he was a lower court judge) that was being decided. His ruling was overturned.

UPDATE: Digby shares Atrios' skepticism (and my skepticism) that the Bush administration will actually pay attention to this ruling, and shows how the wingers are already spinning this. Greenwald has a very lengthy analysis.
