Alberto Gonzales Can Kiss My Constitution

Decisionism entertains you (and itself) with Jeopardy-style trivia!

Answer: The law review articles What's a President to Do? Interpreting the Constitution in the Wake of the Bush Administration's Abuses and Faithfully Executing the Laws: Internal Legal Constraints on Executive Power?

Acceptable Question No. 1: What are the two most recent publications by University of Indiana law professor Dawn Johnsen, Barack Obama's nominee to head the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department?

Acceptable Question No. 2: What is yet another ex post rejoinder to all the people (including some pretty smart folks) who said that there wasn't a big difference between Al Gore and George W. Bush. One hopes that commentators will now keep in mind that regardless of how moderate a candidate for president may seem, he or she's going to be appointing people to a lot of momentous positions a couple of steps down the ladder. That is, the people who actually govern and do things like write torture memos.

Acceptable Unprofessional Question No. 3: What makes blog authors cackle and say "Eat it, John Yoo"?
