It was a busy week in all four branches of the U.S. government. The Executive Branch rejected Congressional subpoenas issued to Harriet Miers and Karl Rove's former assistant Sara Taylor. The Legislative Branch shot down the President's prized Immigration bill (what will Mickey Kaus blog about now?). The Judicial Branch sucker punched free speech and Brown v. Board of Education. And, in the newly-established Go F Yourself Branch, Dick Cheney pulled off another act of political evil sorcery, keeping the press so atwitter over his claims of being a political hermaphrodite that attention was deflected from WaPo's devastating four-part series exposing him as the administration's top torture enthusiast and head shredder of the Constitution. Elsewhere, Madonna's arms frightened me.
