Wrong branch

| Saturday, Aug. 10, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

State Attorney General Kathleen Kane has the sorry distinction of having volunteered to the world that she got through law school without understanding the three branches of government.

She ran for and won an office in the executive branch, where her job is to defend and enforce state law. Now she tells us she can't do that because she has a personal problem with a law she is supposed to defend. Wouldn't you love to have her as your lawyer if she decided that she didn't like your looks?

If she wanted to decide what laws to enforce or defend, she should have run for an office in the legislative branch. If she wanted to weigh in on the constitutionality of a law, she should have run for an office in the judicial branch. The recherché exculpatory stuff is completely beside the point; her personal feelings are irrelevant; her ability is all that matters.

She must have gone to the Eric Holder School of Law.
