Compare and contrast

Congnitive dissonance is cool.

On the one hand, we've got Jonathan Chait yesterday in the LA Times telling us of President Bush's unchecked power and morally corrupt Gilded Age policies. Meanwhile, on the same day our editorial board pointed to this fine moment for the political left in the most recently concluded Supreme Court term:

The 2005-06 court session was recently completed with some major victories for both ends of the political spectrum.

Among the triumphs for liberals were rulings that the president overstepped his authority in ordering the special military courts for detainees at Guantanamo Bay, upholding Oregon's right-to-die law, and rejecting an effort to reduce protection for America's wetlands.

Checked...unchecked? Out of control, reigned in...somebody decide. In the meantime, you're making my head hurt.
