The pen is mightier than Congress?

Seemingly so, at least in the eyes of the current Administration. Hey, anybody interested in another example of Power Abused? Google "presidential signing statements" and prepare (or in my case, continue) to be chilled.

However, the newly-Democratic Congress is on it, according to Dan Froomkin's White House Watch column in the Washington Post. Let's hope Conyers' actions aren't the legislative equivalent of taking over the driving on a long trip, readjusting the rear-view mirror, looking at the chaos in the back seat, saying "don't make me come back there!" and then continuing down the same, ill-begotten path.
