Well, yes, I think Gore actually won.  It sickens me to say that SCOTUS made a decision and we had to live with it.   But I also recognize that had SCOTUS decided for Gore, others would would feel equally that the system cheated them. 

But ALSO equally, the US and the world would have been better off with Gore.  If the SCOTUS decision was close and thoughtful (which I doubt), it was still a bad decision.
That's the real horror of it.  In the first place, I can think of no higher goal of a democracy than the full and accurate counting of the ballots.  Five Supreme Court Justices thought otherwise; their goal was to ensure their man got in, not to ensure the vote was fully and correctly counted.

Here's You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.  The five justices as much as admitted they were cooking the books for their man when they wrote into Bush v. Gore, "Our consideration is limited to the present circumstances, or the problem of equal protection in election processes generally presents many complexities" — in other words, 'you can't use this as precedent, since us five are explicitly pissing on every states' rights decision we've ever handed down in favor of the states'.

Apparently, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is now regretting her vote for Bush - now that it's way too fucking LATE! I read years ago that she voted as she did in order to be able to retire with a Republican as president, so she would be replaced by a conservative.

Lock her up!

I guess this isn't exactly funny, but it's perhaps topical:

I'm trying to remember who it was that says "A dog looks at you as if you're god.  A cat looks at you as if it is."

I think that may have been Christopher Hitchens.



Ah, yes, this may be what you're looking for:


“Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods.”
Christopher Hitchens

I thought it pre-dated Hitch.  I was thinking it was Churchill, but his quote on the matter was (roughly) "A dog will look up to you.  A cat will look down on you.  But a pig will look at you as an equal."
