    The only other minimally sane Publicans I can recall are all retired, ex-officeholders -- and even then, they seem to couch their mild, hesitant, decade-plus-late, CYA concerns, cautions, and occasional criticisms in layers of qualifiers:
    "Well, MAYBE we shouldn't have taken that case."

    On how many other cases did you feel compelled to state, "This is NOT a precedent," you pinhead?
    "PERHAPS the execution was less than optimal -- but the concept itself wasn't flawed! EVERYbody thought he had 'em."
    Well, no, actually, a lot of credible experts (not to mention us mere citizens) thought otherwise -- just nobody who'd get quoted on the Times' first page.
    Etc.
    So yeah, "rare."
    Credit where it's due.
