On Certain Public Officials and Horsewhipping

A wonderful little screed from Glenn Reynolds about Certain Public Officials.  Nine years old and even more pertinent!!  His suggested remedies are also spot-on.

“Here’s the problem with public officials — because that’s really [Louis Michael Seidman’s] audience — deciding to ignore the Constitution: If you’re the president, if you’re a member of Congress, if you are a TSA agent, the only reason why somebody should listen to what you say, instead of horsewhipping you out of town for your impertinence, is because you exercise power via the Constitution. If the Constitution doesn’t count, you don’t have any legitimate power. You’re a thief, a brigand, an officious busybody, somebody who should be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail for trying to exercise power you don’t possess. So if we’re going to start ignoring the Constitution, I’m fine with that. The first part I’m going to start ignoring is the part that says, I have to do whatever they say.”...

The Wisconsin Election Commission Democrat Vote-Fraud Enabling Commission leaps to mind, doesn't it?
