The Decider decides the preznit can do no wrong - ever
Patriot Act safeguards? Forget it. Those were just for the public ceremony. He had his fingers crossed the whole time so they don't count. Military surveillance of civilians? He'll sign the ban for the cameras but don't expect it to stop. As a matter of fact, any provision that calls for explanation, documentation, or oversight of any kind over his decisions are really going too far. It's all too surreal. Is this my country or did I wake up in a Fellini movie?
I urge you to read the whole piece. There's a very interesting connection to these signing letters and Alito. I also have a post up at DetNews with more thoughts and as always Glenn Greewald has an excellent analysis on the greater meaning of this breathtaking grab for unlimited executive power.
