  •  "unitary" executive was early constitutional (2+ / 0-)

    alternative (in fact the one adopted) to a plural executive, that is, an executive branch where rough coequals share power.  Many, or maybe most states have plural executives, electing governor, secretary of state, etc.  "Unitary" simply meant "single", but now I guess it means "monarch", at least to the Dark Lord Cheney.

    You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!
