By now you've heard at least something about President Obama ignoring both the Constitution and tradition by making a "recess" appointment while the Congress is not yet in recess.  The details can get arcane, which is exactly what the White House is counting on lest you become curious and upset.  But it doesn't matter very much anyway.

If there's a law on the books in your community that prohibits the parking of a car along the curb and the sheriff doesn't enforce it, is it really a law?  Similarly, if the Republican members of Congress choose to do nothing more about this violation of the Constitution than whine a little bit here at outset, is the President really in violation?

I, for one, will be more than a little surprised if the current GOP leadership does anything more than whine a bit here at the outset?
