A federal judge has dismissed the GAO lawsuit against the White House seeking records of Dick Cheney’s so-called energy task force on the ground that the GAO lacks standing to sue. Isn’t this the oldest cop out in the book for judges? I honestly don’t even really care what Cheney discussed with the campaign contributors, we already know that this White House is as pro-energy industry as it gets. And it’s disheartening to know that the voting public obviously doesn’t give a crap that the President and his henchmen feel that it is their right to rule without any accountability whatsoever. Given that the public doesn’t seem to want to hold them accountable, I guess maybe they’re right.
