recall waiting

the 9th circuit court of appeals is considering whether it will revisit the decision made yesterday by the three member panel putting the california recall on hold.

the san jose mercury news reports:

the associated press reported that the 9th u.s. circuit court of appeals asked california election officials and recall proponents to file briefs by this afternoon on whether they want an 11-judge appellate panel to rehear the case.

for now, the election remains on hold, under monday's decision by the three-judge panel.

the brilliance of the aclu's lawsuit to postpone the recall until punchcard ballots are replaced is now coming to light.

if this decision gets appealed to the supreme court, awol's daddy's friends will have to revisit and reconsider their own 2000 decision bush v. gore, which stopped the florida recount (and the rest, as they say, is history. dirty, manipulated, sickening history).

if the supremes rule in favor of the recall going forward on oct. 7, it will just show how partisan they really are. if they chicken out of their partisan ways and act like judges and uphold the 9th circuit court's decision (or even better, refuse to hear it), davis and the dems will have adequate time to force ah-nold to talk about the issues.

on the other hand, the 9th circuit court could revisit the three member panel decision, and, who knows, reverse it themselves. it's possible.
