Open Thread

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse dissects (video) Bush's doctrine based on what he's found about the Bush administration interpretation about Bush's authority to violate FISA:

1. I don't have to follow my own rules. And if I break them, I don't have to tell you that I'm breaking them.
2. I get to tell you what my own powers are.
3. The Department of Justice doesn't tell me what the law is. I tell them what the law is.

Shorter Sheldon: The decider in Chief claims power to rewrite and interpret the Constitution as he wishes.
