Last night Hardball had Alan Simpson and Christopher Hitchens on. Why people keep rolling out Simpson for debates absolutely baffles me, and it was pretty clear that he was there to be Hitchens’s punching bag. And was he ever.

The “debate,” in a nutshell, was about whether or not the US is blatantly violating its own laws by effectively ordering the assassination of Hussein.

Hitchens made the excellent point, though, that he would rather the legality of such an order be determined by the proper channels than through a “finding” by the administration in power.

I won’t even talk about the erratic treatment of the people we’re detaining (some are getting civil trials; some aren’t).

By the way…what’s it called when a sitting ruler doesn’t follow the laws he’s supposed to?
