Hey, look . . . there's an administrative state!

This WaPo piece by Jonathan Turley ("The rise of the fourth branch of government") was welcome (because it will be seen, I suspect, by at least some of my students as adding some plausibility to my own suggestions in class that the place and role of the "administrative state" in our constitutional structure raise tricky questions) but also kind of funny: "The rise of this fourth branch represents perhaps the single greatest change in our system of government since the founding.  We cannot long protect liberty if our leaders continue to act like mere bystanders to the work of government."  Whoa . . .  who knew?
