Barr. None.

Yesterday when I was driving around running errands, I listened to CSPAN radio. They were broadcasting a talk that Attorney General William Barr was giving to the Federalist Society. The same Federalist Society that has been vetting judges for President Trump to make sure that only conservatives get to be federal judges.

At first, it seemed that Attorney General Barr was just reviewing the U.S. Constitution on the balance of power among the three branches of government and separation of powers. The longer he talked the more he seemed to be propagandizing for the conservatives.

Then he accused the 'left' of 'waging a scorched earth, no-holds-barred resistance' and of 'undermining the rule of law.' As the Tappet Brothers would say: Boooogus.

Ruth Marcus had a recent column in the Washington Post thateloquently summed up my overall reaction. Click link to read it:
