the Yoo coup

John Yoo hates America.

"We are used to a peacetime system in which Congress enacts the laws, the president enforces them, and the courts interpret them. In wartime, the gravity shifts to the executive branch.''

Perhaps no greater lie has ever been told about the structure of the United States.
This argument is utterly shameless and self-serving. It is the intellectual equivalent of saying "fuck you" to the people of the United States.

Hey, dipshit! The Constitution was designed to be in place when war is happening or not. What you're talking about represents radical change. We don't want it.

Go fuck yourself.

Hat tip to Glenn Greenwald.
