The Congress Shall Have The Power To ...

Via Laura Rozen - Our Secretary of Defense no longer feels like he has to report his activities to Congress, except when it fits into his schedule. That's nice.

At least this makes A1 of the Post:

Two dozen members of the House Armed Services Committee had not yet had their turn to question Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld at yesterday's hearings when he decided he had had enough.

At 12:54, he announced that at 1 p.m. he would be taking a break and then going to another hearing in the Senate. "We're going to have to get out and get lunch and get over there," he said. When the questioning continued for four more minutes, Rumsfeld picked up his briefcase and began to pack up his papers.

Wish I could do that. Sorry, folks, need lunch - I'm done. I wonder if he had just delivered the jerk store line.
