Separation of powers?! But that would keep government officials from making any law they want!

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) called the Founding Fathers “maniacal” for creating this principle.

Her comments even startled the MSNBC hosts. A brave few ventured onto Twitter to offer some checks and balances to her claim.

Perhaps McCaskill thought elective despotism was the government they fought for. Legal limits don’t seem to be a concern of the Democrats these days.

Yes. This is concerning.
