More bush "Signing Statement" Bush*t

Via Eschaton, this from the NY Daily News (which is far-enough right for their catch of this to be surprising): [emphasis added]

President [bush] has quietly claimed sweeping new powers to open Americans' mail without a judge's warrant, the Daily News has learned.

The President asserted his new authority when he signed a postal reform bill into law on Dec. 20. [bush] then issued a "signing statement" that declared his right to open people's mail under emergency conditions.

That claim is contrary to existing law and contradicted the bill he had just signed, say experts who have reviewed it.

Why am I not surprised that george w. bush is trying once again to expand his preznidential powers into the realm of "President for Life" Papa Doc Duvalier?

Other than leaving Bigus Dickus in charge, someone remind me again why we shouldn't impeach this God-awful rolling after-birth of a Bohemian boil-sucker? (And my apologies to Bohemian boil-suckers, who are probably no more pleased with bush than I am...)
