To clarify: the executive branch is not part of the executive branch

White House spokeswoman Dana Perino initially offered this explanation:
MS. PERINO: I think that that is an interesting constitutional question, and I think that lots of people can debate it. I think when we were talking about the EO from last week, we've gone over that several times. You probably don't want me to go over it again. But the Vice President -- any Vice President has legislative and executive functions.
When the dumbstruck reporters failed to move on, she offered this:
"He's not exempt from following the laws of the United States," said Ms. Perino. "He's exempt just from this reporting requirement in this particular executive order."
To sum up, the executive branch is not part of the executive branch, and they're subject to same laws we are, until they're not.
