Remember all those folks who were so deeply concerned that the Palm Sunday legislation establishing federal jurisdiction over the Terri Schiavo case was the end of federalism and the separation of powers? And wondered how Congress could pass legislation that would only be applied to one person?

Well, where are these folks now when COngress passes legislation funding a very specific form of medical research, in direct vonflict with a standing executive order?

UPDATE: I should add the "mere cluster of cells" argument makes having special legislation about using it for research even more specious. If there's nothing special about the embryo, what's all the fuss over?
