Useful idiots.

Or, "when it's convenient for a Republican to be a Republican"

Court dismisses challenge to domestic spying
3-judge panel splits along party lines over Bush’s surveillance program

CINCINNATI - A federal appeals court on Friday ordered the dismissal of a lawsuit challenging President Bush’s domestic spying program, saying the plaintiffs had no standing to sue.

In a 2-1 decision, two Republican appointees on the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against allowing the lawsuit. A Democratic appointee judge disagreed, saying it was clear to him that the post-9/11 warrantless surveillance program aimed at uncovering terrorist activity violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978.

That's all I'm gonna cite from the article. It keeps going on the same line.

What's the deal with this "Republican appointed judges said this" and "Democratic appointee said that" crap?

Not having a legal standing is just what it is.

It's only convenient to have an (R) after your name when you're no longer supporting the President's Iraq policy.

Political expediancy and all that jazz.
