After espousing administrative power as a sort of unbound power, Adrian Vermeule attacks my critique of administrative power in an unbound manner. It therefore is difficult to avoid wondering whether there is a connection. On behalf of an indefensible power, is it necessary to adopt an indefensible mode of argument? Administrative power must be unlawful if this is its best defense against my book.
