John Dean: Ethics Expert

Following the "Company Line," the JSOnline gives us the benefit of John Dean's, ah, thought:

In his first appearance before Congress since the Watergate hearings of the 1970s, former White House Counsel John Dean drew a parallel between George W. Bush and the man Dean once worked for, Richard M. Nixon, saying, "We have entered a period where a president is pushing the envelope (and) is actually defying the Congress."

Unlike five Federal FISA judges, who unanimously agreed that Bush is utilizing powers granted under the Constitution as Commander-in-Chief during wartime.

Here's a more appropriate take:

[Senator] Graham said today's controversy over domestic surveillance involves an "honest, sincere debate" about "where (presidential) authority begins and ends."

As one might expect, it was Feinie (D-AlQuaeda) who requested the hearing.
