Harry over at Scratchings;

I really wonder if the radical statists now caught up in emotional clamoring for torture law framework, rolling back protections against abuse by government and private power, and in favor of increasing amounts of executive power ever took a basic civics class. Their impulse seems to be to take an imperfect, often bad situation, and make it much, much worse; rather like children who destroy their toys completely when parts of them don't function the way mommy and daddy promised.

Synergy Update: Mithras;

It puts me in mind of a toddler with a favorite toy.
