    "[T]he case for a unitary executive seems, if anything, stronger today than it was in the 18th Century."

    Um, yeah...  Too bad those goddam Founders considered and rejected just that proposition.  And then, just to add insult to injury, those sniveling bastards went and put in writing what the limits should be on executive power -- just like it was some kinda rule or sumpthin. And they made everybody ratify it, like it was supposed to be, like, some kind of binding law. I mean, can you believe those guys?!

    They just had to go and ruin everything!  Those fucking Founders!  Boy, they sure must have hated America!
