King George IV

So, lessee here, the prez-det can, uh, break the law by spying on the public without getting a warrant or going through the courts or paying any attention to the law whatsoever, because he's the president, and whatever he does in the "War on Terror" is, um, legal. And Congress can go hang itself for all he cares.

Sounds sorta like "royal prerogative" to me. Wasn't somebody impeached for this a while ago? You know, "Tricky Dick" Nixon?

Well, we didn't actually elect Mr. Bush either time, so I suppose he's gotten used to the idea that he isn't really a president, after all. He's just getting brazen about it.
