Just suppose.

From A.L.:

Suppose a lame duck president with an approval rating of 25 percent were to demand that a Congress controlled by the opposite party pass legislation on behalf of a bunch of large corporations that no one much likes that would absolve those corporations of any liability for past illegal activities they may have participated in at that president’s request. Suppose further that the primary purpose and effect of this legislation is to immediately terminate existing court proceedings that threaten to shed some light on the nature and scope of these illegal activities. And finally, suppose that our hypothetical president is unwilling to provide the public or Congress (other than members of one committee) with any specific information regarding the activities that are to be immunized. Indeed, this hypothetical president won’t even confirm that the corporations being immunized ever assisted the government at all. Oh, and did I mention that this legislation is intensely unpopular among the political base of the party controlling Congress?

More later…
