Why elections count

I am sure we have all read about this today.
A federal appeals court last night temporarily blocked a judge's order that the government must release 17 Chinese Muslims held at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, into the United States.

The three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit issued the "administrative stay" at the request of the Justice Department.

In a one-page order, the appellate judges said they issued the stay to give them "sufficient opportunity" to consider the government's request for a lengthier delay while it appeals the ruling by U.S. District Judge Ricardo M. Urbina.

On Tuesday, Urbina ruled that the government could no longer detain the men in Cuba because it offered no proof they were enemy combatants or security risks. He ordered the government to deliver the men, all known as Uighurs, to his courtroom by 10 a.m. tomorrow to be transferred into the custody of Uighur families in the Washington area.
If they were released, I would suggest that they be put in a group home in Judge Urbina's neighborhood - better yet, right next door.

Let's look a bit more at Judge Urbina. Mmmmm, who would appoint such a person to one of the most important position in the Third Branch of Gov'munt?
1970-1972 D.C. Public Defender Service
1974-1981 Faculty, Howard University Law School
1981 Associate Judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia
1994 Appointed to the United States District Court by President Bill Clinton
Of course.

Sen. Obama (D-IL) is long time buddies with a domestic Anarcho-Communist terrorists and was a member of a Trotskyist Socialist Party - after the fall of the Soviet Union even. Imagine what and who he would appoint to the Bench with a Democrat controlled Senate. Ponder.
