Politics is Crazy and Politicians Make Law

According to their responses at a recent candidates forum, three candidates for the Republican nomination to run for the US Senate in Georgia would support a resolution to impeach President Obama if they had the opportunity to vote on one.  The most prominent among the candidates is Rep. Paul Broun. Rep. Broun,  was the subject of a post in this blog when, as reported by the Huffington Post, he famously opined:

"God's word is true. I've come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the big bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell," said Broun, who is an MD. "It's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior."

Remember, these people make laws. When studying the Legal Environment of Business, it does a disservice to our student for us to focus entirely on the judicial process while ignoring the legislative process. The AACSB Accreditation Standard #9 requires as part of the Undergraduate Curriculum content:
  We are not so naive as to believe the Civic's Class maxim that the law is insulated from politics. Let's make sure our student get a thorough education as well.
