OT: vanity fair is very liberal, right? its that same graydon putz that writes for LA times or some such thing? I only remember bits and pieces but I need to dispute someone that claims you'll get the 'truth' about the GWB 2000 election and the supreme court from this mag.
If someone wants to know about the Supreme Court ruling, they should read it. They should also read the Florida ruling it overturned. (I could not believe a jurist writing a legal opinion would cite a newspaper, but it's right there in the footnotes) I they really want to get into the subject, they might want to explore the election law being ruled on. Everything they need to inform themselves is on-line.
If they don't have the time or inclination to do all of that, they need to stop thinking they are well informed about the topic. There is some truth for you.
