More shameless than you would have believed possible
From the LA Times, via The Poor Man:
WASHINGTON — Bush administration lawyers argued in three closely contested states last week that only the Justice Department, and not voters themselves, may sue to enforce the voting rights set out in the Help America Vote Act, which was passed in the aftermath of the disputed 2000 election.Because, of course, the only person with the requisite wisdom and objectivity to protect the American voter would be John Ashcroft.
Another example of DeLong's Law: The Bush Administration is always worse than one imagines, even when taking into account DeLong's Law.
