It's About Expanding Powers

Interesting reactions are surfacing lately about Scalito. We are distracted by the Roe vs Wade banter when perhaps what the president really cares about is Scalito's support on expanding presidential powers. Given what's been going on lately, this is what this administration seems to be after. The confirmation hearings better be about grilling him intensively on that subject.

I'll end this post with a very appropriate definition:

despot : 1. A master; an absolute or irresponsible ruler or sovereign.
2. One who rules regardless of a constitution or laws; a tyrant. 3. George Bush
