Here's Sen. Roland Burris arguing either in favor of or possibly against (or maybe in favor of being against?) administration czars at last week's Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs hearing…
"This has — being a constitutional and political science student, I mean, this is Political Science 101 or Political Science, maybe, 1000. The panel's just been terrific.
"And I have so many thoughts just rolling through my head, I don't even know where to start.
"I mean, this is — this is the meat that caused us political scientists to even exist, because you're dealing with these major issues of the separation of powers and the creation of this country and whether or not you want your president to really have the powers that you granted it, and whether or not the Congress, which is on similar or equal footing, can then control or muscle in on those powers of the president."
Can't argue with that. (Go ahead, try. It's impossible.)
And, you know what? That's gonna look frickin' sweet engraved onto his monument to himself.
