Disregard of the Judiciary

We see it right here in Knox County. In spite of a recent ruling of the Tennessee Supreme Court affirming that term limits can apply to county commisioners, 12 of the 15 Knox County commissioners are running for re-election despite being term-limited out of office. Whatever the Supreme Court says apparenty just doesn't matter to the local oligarchs.

So perhaps I've been too hard on President Bush. Institutional arrogance is not limited to the highest levels of government.
