Fuhrerprinzip in action

Think Progress » Justice Department Lawyer To Congress: ‘The President Is Always Right’

The Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday heard testimony from Steven Bradbury, head of the Justice Department’s office of legal counsel. When questioned by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) on whether the President’s interpretation of the Hamdan case was right or wrong, Bradbury replied, “The President is always right.”

I am looking forward to reading John Dean's forthcoming book about the growing authoritarian streak in conservative politics. On the other hand, I have already seen the movie.

I can't wait for the TV shows: "Hamdan's Heroes" anyone? Bush to special prosecutor: "I know NOTHING!"
