Why don't Dems get it that the only thing the Florida Supreme Court did in the 2000 election was to rule?

that Al Gore could not break the law regarding how long he could keep recounting.....that, since there was a law that set a limit, he had to follow the limit? There was no conspiracy to have the court hand the win to was simple, basic law.

    That was the U.S. Supreme Court. The Florida Supreme Court ruled in favor of Gore -- not surprising since all seven members of the Florida Supreme Court were Democratic nominees. And the U.S. Supreme Court did a bit more than that. It said that the Florida Supreme Court could not approve a recount procedure where different counties applied inconsistent standards for counting ballots.
