Snowjob: Oversight, Shmoversight

So Tony Snowjob doesn't think the Congress has any oversight authority over the executive branch. I guess all those congressional committees and hearings are all just for show, a chance for legislators to primp and preen for the cameras without really getting anything done. I know that's how it was during Republican rule, but the Democrats are taking that whole "oversight" thing a little more seriously.

As far as Tony and the White House is concerned, Congress' only job is to open up the treasury checkbook whenever the Decider needs an extension on his war allowance. But now that it is beginning to assert itself as the co-equal branch that it is, look for more of these "Congress has limited ability" memes to keep popping up for the next two years.
