Here we go, folks:
Positive sign: The AP is actually using the phrase “moving toward a constitutional showdown” in the first sentence of the story.
Negative sign: CNN has buried the story over in the “latest news” colum, below “Divided court rejects school diversity plan” and “High court blocks Texas killer’s execution,” and right above “Town mourns cheerleaders killed in crash.”
Next up — Contempt of Congress charges, which would have to be enforced by the Justice Dept., which is at the center of this whole mess already……and then a court battle over Constitutional authority, which will go to the Bush-stocked Supreme Court.
Expect that nothing will come of this. It’s official — we no longer have a Legislature.
