Power Play

The Supreme Court (including the world’s most famous duck hunter) finally heard arguments in the case involving Dick Cheney’s secret energy panel. Attorneys for the Sierra Club want to know who was at the meetings and if any favors were doled out. The administration’s lead attorney Ted Olson argued that: “This is a case about the separation of powers.”

Of course Olson is right. It’s about the separation of powers between those who have a tremendous amount of power and those who don’t.

Maybe the whole case is moot. I mean we already know that the “former” CEO of Halliburton was in on the meetings. Isn’t that enough?

Concentration is important!
