Arlen Spector: Silliest Bitch On The Hill

This is hilarious. Arlen Spector is now crafting a bill that will allow the Congress to sue President Bush over his use of presidential signing statements when he signs bills into law. These signing statement have the effect of a line item veto with the president deciding what part of the laws will be enforced. Of course our Constitution doesn't make provisions for a line item veto so they would normally be ruled unconstitutional.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the courtroom. Spector took a little side trip to put Sameul Alito and John Roberts on the bench. They are going to laugh Spector out of the building, no matter what the law reads. The bad thing is, Spector doesn't even see this coming. He is plodding along with the bill which will get tossed by the probably majority of Justices who buy into unitary executive theory, the power Bush claims when he issues these signing statements. Justices Spector helped get there to stop him.
