Orrin Hatch HATES America
Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold opened the (Judiciary Committee's presidential censure hearings) by claiming that the president's legal theory justifying the wiretaps could lead to an ever-greater executive power grab. "Under this theory, we no longer have a constitutional system consisting of three coequal branches of government," he said. "We have a monarchy."
A few minutes later, Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch shot back: "Quit trying to score political points."
