Qui Tacet Consentit

It means silence implies consent. It’s also one of the more articulate and important blog posts I’ve read in a little while.

It’s an article that is questioning why Dick Cheney is able to continually profane the Constitution with his actions and why the media is hardly mentioning it.

From the Washington Post.com, “Cheney is not subject to the executive order, she said, “because the president gets to decide whether or not he should be treated separately, and he’s decided that he should.”

More constitutional shenanigans, but that’s not really the point of the blog post. The real point is that while this happens, very few places are talking much about it because they are so busy with other key topics. Paris, the slain pregnant woman and the Iphone are all at the top of the list. Silence is approval. If our journalists don’t challenge this kind of overreaching behavior (again) from the Vice President, well no wonder they are trying to dis bloggers all the time.
