Supreme Court Accidentally Upholds Constitution

Apparently, there really is such a thing as habeas corpus after all. The talking heads seem happy, but I am left to ponder: is it really something to cheer about that the highest court in the land, by a 5-4 vote no less, has only grudgingly upheld what has been the fundamental basis of the rule of law since the Magna Carta? Is the bar really set that low now?
And to any Hillary Clinton supporters out there still contemplating either sitting this one out or supporting McBush, a point to consider: FIVE to FOUR.
