Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

If the President Does It, It's Not Illegal (For Him, Anyway)

Anyone reporting that the President of the United States is violating the Constitution would be punished by up to 15 years in prison, a fine of $1 million, or both, under proposed new legislation. For you Republicans out there who continue to defend this shameless Administration, riddle me this: would you be comfortable with Hillary Clinton wielding this kind of power?

I would be more comfortable with the Devil himself wielding that kind of power than I would Hillary.

And that's precisely my point. If you wouldn't trust your worst political enemy as President with that kind of power, then NO President should have that kind of power, particularly (as argued by the Bush Administration) if the power cannot be limited by Congress or even reviewed by the courts.
