Power Grab or Putsch

James Madison wrote in Federalist Paper No. 47:

The accumulation of all powers legislative, executive and judiciary in the same hands, whether of one, a few or many...may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.

Elizabeth Drew in the New York Review of Books this week has an excellent article about the Bushovik grab for executive power. It is a must read.
