Ted Olson on a potential Michigan/Florida delegate battle

In the Wall Street Journal Olson writes about possible legal challenges to the democratic party denying Florida and Michigan voters the vote. There are two cringeworthy moments. First, Olson explains that democrats are hypocrites no matter what side they take:
The array of battle-tested Democratic lawyers who fought for recounts, changes in ballot counting procedures, and even re-votes in Florida courts and the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000 would separate into two camps. Half of them would be relying on the suddenly-respectable Supreme Court Bush v. Gore decision that overturned the Florida courts' post-hoc election rules changes. The other half would be preaching a new-found respect for "federalism" and demanding that the high court leave the Florida court decisions alone.
And then there's his ridiculous conclusion, which is essentially "look at my big cock":
And Democratic lawyers have undoubtedly kept copies of the legal briefs they filed for Al Gore in 2000 into which their computers can easily substitute the name Clinton for Gore.

If it does happen, I'd be more than happy to loan Sen. Obama the winning briefs that helped secure the election of the legitimate winner of the 2000 election, George W. Bush.
That's so snide.
