A Revolution Stalled

Gerald flags yesterday's 5-4 verdict from the Supreme Court rejecting the suspension of habeas corpus and upholding the separation of powers. As Yale constitutional law professor Jack Balkin writes:

Boumediene is further proof, if any were necessary, that the constitutional revolution proposed by the Bush Administration after September 11, 2001 has failed.
It's a revolution that, per Gerald, Sen. Collins worked to advance.

And it may still succeed if the junior senator has her way.
