Constitution geek run amok, again

There was a really interesting piece in Slate, about a month ago, that I just got 'round to reading today.

Stealing First.

It discusses why Dick Cheney should win in Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson's civil suit against him, and how he should go about it.

It's all about the First Ammendment.

I'd love to see Bad Dick lose it all in the suit, but the article makes a strong case that the Constitutional considerations should send the outcome the opposite direction.

And I'd rather see the Constitution applied and upheld than see it railroaded just to punish a repugnant ass.

Of course, ideally, both would be nice.
