Judges 1, Tyrants 0

Last Saturday I was musing on power play between Ecuador's Judicial and Executive branches. Well yesterday, Lucio GutiƩrrez was ousted from the Presidency, the third since 1996. He's been given amnesty in Brazil. I hope this is a lesson about shamelessly trying to stack the court. That goes for the Senate Judiciary Committee as they again try to fit a square Pricilla Owen into a round Federal Circuit seat.

Doonesbury is illustrating the Tom DeLay political death watch... I hope DeLay follows GutiƩrrez, then Frist can have his turn. Hey, Bill why didn't you diagnose Gutierrez' political life from video tape... because it was obviously dead.

If Americans had the cajones of their South American counterparts, certain people wouldn't leave D.C. in Armani suits on corporate jets, but rather tarred and feathered, riding a rail.
