Pick Your Principles to Suit Your Principal

For more on John Yoo's absurdithon in yesterday's NYT, see this post by Orin Kerr over at Volokh for another embarrasing example of John Yoo's unfamiliarity with history (this time it's the history of things Yoo himself wrote). See also this follow-up post of Kerr's. It's disappointing but truly breathtaking just how much of a shill the quotes Kerr has unearted show Yoo to be.

In a nutshell:
  • Clinton use aggressive interpretation of executive authority in foreign policy...bad!
  • Bush tear up statutes, sign them while promising to disregard them....GOOD!
It must be great to be able to choose your principles to suit your principal.
