Some wonderful day, historians will realize that we had the equivalent of a temper-tantrum throwing 10-year old on the Supreme Court.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says the high court did not inject itself into the 2000 presidential election.

Speaking at the Time Warner Center last night, Scalia said: "The election was dragged into the courts by the Gore people. We did not go looking for trouble."

But he said the court had to take the case.

"The issue was whether Florida's Supreme Court or the United States Supreme Court [would decide the election.] What did you expect us to do? Turn the case down because it wasn't important enough?"
That's sort of like blaming Dred Scott for Dred Scott.
