It's good to be the king!

From the a post in the comment section of Kevin Drum's site:

A caller to a discussion show this morning asked this: "Why did the White House authorize a multi-million dollar investigation by a special prosecutor if they knew all along what had happened and that, because the information was declassified or declassifiable by the President, there('s) nothing to investigate?"

What amazes me is how easily people acquiesce to the ridiculous idea that a President can purposefully harm national security and have it be accepted by divine right. There really ought to be no debate about whether Presidents have such a right. If the President gave China our best aircraft carrier, would we have a debate over whether he had a right to do it? I think not.

And yet, the debate goes on anyhow.

I think there's a portion of the population that WOULD be able to defend the aircraft carrier deal. They'd convince themselves it was necessary.

They're batshit crazy of course, but they're there.
