Talking Points

Here are some talking points about the Supreme Court decision:

The Supreme Court's intervention was improper and unethical. There was no federal question for the U.S. Supreme Court to review. The Supreme Court never before reviewed the administration of an election.

Scalia, O'Connor, and Thomas had obvious conflicts of interest.

The decision was presented as a "one-time-only" decision - which is absurd on its face, and has never before been claimed in Supreme Court history.


The December 12 "safe harbor" deadline was a deliberate misreading of the law. If there was such a deadline, it was December 18. Even so, electors could be selected later, without the "safe harbor" presumption. In 1960, Hawaii presented it's electors on January 6th!

The law specifically provides for Congress to be the final arbiter in matters of Electors, not the Supreme Court.

The Equal Protection argument for different ballot counting standards was completely bogus. Under the Supreme Court's own standards, for there to be an equal protection violation, there must be an intent to discriminate against a class of people.


Bush had no standing.

The Felonious Five should be forever thought of as unprincipled, partisan meddlers. According to Vincent Bugliosi, "the Justices intervened inappropriately to steal an election--and in so doing committed one of the most serious crimes in American history."

We cannot have the Supreme Court picking our President and we will never accept a President who is chosen by an incomplete count stopped by a partisan Supreme Court decision led by judges appointed by the father of George W. Bush. Let's let them know we will never forget!

And to make their jobs easier, below are suggestions of authors the media can interview to highlight this historic occasion. Let them know that most of these authors will be at events being held on December 10th in NY and December 12th in DC by Democrats.com and sponsored by CLG. These forums serve to help build public awareness about the issues at stake and draw attention to the arguments being made:

* A More Perfect Union, by Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr.
* Down and Dirty, by Jake Tapper
* Grand Theft 2000, by Douglas Kellner
* Hail to the Thief, by Danny Schechter

* Jews for Buchanan, by John Nichols
* Media Unlimited, by NYU professor Todd Gitlin
