I’m not one to say “vast right-wing conspiracy,” but…


“While drafted in terms applicable mainly to the case before it, the opinion [of the court, regarding Cheney’s 2001 energy task force and the request for documents regarding that task force to be turned over,] revealed a court now sympathetic to the White House’s need to insulate itself from lawsuits. In 1997, the court ruled 9 to 0 that President Bill Clinton would not be unduly hampered by Paula Jones’s lawsuit for sexual harassment he had allegedly committed while governor of Arkansas; yesterday, the court warned of ‘meritless claims against the executive branch.'”

(Oh, ok, I am one to say “vast right-wing conspiracy.”)
