Did we ever really think it would turn out any other way? Bob, did you go to Mukasey’s speech yesterday? If so, did you boo and hiss?
And do you think now is a good time for Congress to start issuing contempt citations–beginning with the big Turd Blossom himself?????
I mean, really. They broke the law. They admitted it. They completely broke the Justice Department. They utterly politicized it, turned it into an arm of the White House’s political operations, and didn’t give a shit how many federal statutes they violated in the process. And, oh, by the way, most of these people were LAWYERS. Was the irony lost on anyone at the Ritz-Carlton that this bad news was delivered to the one organization that nominally holds the only policing mechanism left once criminal prosecution is ruled out? I mean, there is still talk that Monica Goodling could be disbarred–but that would be up to her local bar association, of course . . .
