That is funny.

On a serious note, though, the Founders in Convention, both the Constitutional one and the ratifying ones, envisioned a fourth branch of government. That, of course was all negated by force at Appomattox.

Yep. Sometimes more is said in a political cartoon than in a Op-Ed piece in the WSJ.

The Fourth estate has largely given away their right to speak for the people by speaking solely for the government.

Simple. The states ( the fourth branch, actually the first branch as they created the general government ) has the power ( usurped and stolen form them ) to nullify any law they deem unconstitutional. The also, as was understood by every one in convention, had the power, authority, or right, if you will, to withdraw from a union that no longer served their needs. Read the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions, as well as The Tenth Amendment.
