That Troublesome Constitution

Instapundit:
ANOTHER “CRISIS” REQUIRING EXTRAORDINARY MEASURES! US-Russian Arms Negotiators “Under the Gun,” Might Temporarily Bypass Senate Ratification for Treaty.

Here’s a hint — if you bypass Senate ratification, it’s not a treaty.

Funny, in an administration filled with lawyers and led by a former CONLAW Professor, there is a surprising ignorance about the Constitution.

Or perhaps it is just the opposite...perhaps they are *soooo* smart about the Constitution, that they have all sorts of nifty ways to get around it when it is an inconvenience.

Of course neither option is very comforting....
