Let the Borking Begin!

Yippee! Hoist with their own petard.
White House Briefing  News on President George W Bush and the Bush Administration: "Back then, Vice President Spiro T. Agnew was trying to stave off a grand jury investigation into kickback, bribery and tax evasion charges by insisting that he was only answerable to Congress.

After all, only Congress holds the power to remove the president or vice president from office -- and presumably it would be impossible to function as vice president from a jail cell.

But none other that then-solicitor general Robert Bork concluded that, while 'the indictment or criminal prosecution of a sitting President would impermissibly undermine the capacity of the executive branch to perform its constitutionally assigned functions,' the vice president was fair game."
Karma, Karma, Karma. You can't call for it when needed, but oh baby, as anyone who has watched soap operas can tell you, it comes when you least expect it and from a source you weren't prepared for.
