Glenn Greenwald stupefied by a speech dripping with denial, given by The Former Cheerleader and this passage:
When the Founders drafted the Constitution, they had a clear understanding of tyranny. They also had a clear idea about how to prevent it from ever taking root in America. Their solution was to separate the government’s powers into three co-equal branches: the executive, the legislature, and the judiciary. Each of these branches plays a vital role in our free society. Each serves as a check on the others. And to preserve our liberty, each must meet its responsibilities — and resist the temptation to encroach on the powers the Constitution accords to others.
Whoa! Did he really say that? Saturday Night Live, in it’s heyday, couldn’t make up this kind of satire.
