Today's sign that we have become a society of men and not of laws:
Using a reinterpretation of a Watergate-era law, a U.S. appeals court threw out a lawsuit against Vice President Dick Cheney on Tuesday. The court ruled that Mr. Cheney was free to meet in secret with energy industry lobbyists in 2001 while creating the President's energy policy.So Hillary was forced to disclose the members of her task force, but Cheney—with the same kind of membership—is not forced to disclose his.
As much as the Moonie Times sees this decision as a "victory for the rule of law," I can't see it as anything more than support for the Star Chamber mentality of the Bushies.
