The majority of the Justices on the Supreme Court are Republicans. That is common knowledge.

And had it been a Liberal judge majority Supreme Court that ruled in favor of Gore, would you have said it is because the majority of the Judges are Democrats?
I think you would have easily said it was the right ruling and democracy lives!. rolleyes.gif

Yet you stated the SC was "a Republican controlled Supreme Court." Do you believe the Republican Party controls the Supremes? How idiotic.

How is it idiotic? It is controlled by Republicans insomuch as they have the majority. Pity you didn't understand that.

It is idiotic for you to be complaining about a conservative majority Supreme court, why do you think there are 9 judges and not 10 or 8?

The key word is "controlled." Do you believe the Supremes are controlled by anyone or any force?

Of course we're aware of their political leanings. That doesn't equate to "control." When the time inevitably arrives and the Supremes have a liberal majority, will they be "controlled" by the Democratic Party? (The answer is no.)

You are taking the word "control" and extrapolating that into something entirely different. It's not like I am saying that the Republicans give them their marching orders - that would be idiotic. But the Supreme Court, as a whole, is controlled by the Republicans. It's the same as the Senate and House being controlled by the Democrats, currently. If you'd prefer, to save argument, I'll rephrase: The Supreme Court, currently and during the 2000 elections, is a Republican majority.
