    Joke of a Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Bush Constitutional Violations

    By a 5-4 vote, the high court's conservative majority sided with the Bush administration by ruling that a Wisconsin group called the Freedom from Religion Foundation and three of its members had no legal right to bring the lawsuit in the first place.

The majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito, who was appointed to the high court by President George W. Bush, overturned a lower-court ruling that allowed the lawsuit to proceed.
