Potential trouble for Bush

A bunch of people in the Seattle area are getting together to send copies of ‘The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder’ to district attorneys all over the country. They have the books and now need to raise the postage.

Interestingly, unlike with Bugliosi’s earlier writings about the coup of 2000, I am unaware of any attempted debunking of the book. When the case gets to the Supreme Court, I think we can count on Scalia and Thomas to rule in favor of Bush, simply because they are contemptuous, but we don’t really know whether this is true of Alito and Roberts, and the other five members are capable of being fair (though Kennedy isn’t very good at it, and supposedly authored the phony opinion in Bush v. Gore that he wasn’t brave enough to sign). Lower courts are less power-mad and thus less likely to rule for Bush. I think the main problem is going to be finding anyone willing to take on the case in the absence of support from ‘the Establishment’.
