Co-equal But Separate, Right?

This comes from Rep. Michele Bachmann, whose grip on reality is somewhat tenuous, but, for what it's worth, she told Lou Dobbs that the incoming conservative members of Congress will be taught a course on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  According to Bachmann, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has "graciously agreed to kick off [the] class."  Now, there is no question that these folks have a lot to learn about the Constitution, but having a sitting justice of the Supreme Court school members of the legislature on constitutional interpretation is pretty disturbing.  Maybe the first session should be about the separation of powers.
