Something He Does Right

I'm always bashing Dubya for his ridiculous border policy... or rather, I'm always bashing the fact that he has no policy, unless you allow "Open Door" to be considered a policy.

Dubya's appointments to the SCOTUS have started to have some effect. Recently, in Kansas v. Marsh, 04-1170, Bush's appointees sided on the States' Rights side of the fence, saying (from Souter's opinion):

"The American people have determined that the good to be derived from capital punishment - in deterrence, and perhaps most of all in the meting out of condign justice for horrible crimes - outweighs the risk of error. It is no proper part of the business of this court, or of its justices, to second-guess that judgment, much less to impugn it before the world...."

Just for those keeping score, the scumbag in question "was convicted in the June 1996 killings of Marry Ane Pusch and her 19-month-old daughter, Marry Elizabeth. Pusch was shot, stabbed and her throat was slit. Her body was set on fire. The toddler died several days later from severe burns."
