Yeah, the Dummycrats are whining that "Oh, oh, it was politically motivated!" And? US Attorneys are political animals first, attorneys second if ever. It's the rules of the game. Face it, how many "Former US Attorneys" have went on to elected office? I know of at least one (Rudy Gulliani) who is running for President, for cryin' out loud. And we won't even mention that Saint Bill Clinton fired all 93 US Attorneys when he took office, but that's OK, since he is a Dopeocrat.
Of course, because Bush is playing his usual "Don't even think about defending yourself" game, the Dems now think they smell blood and now they want Attorney General Gonzales as well. (You know, Bush can really be as stupid as the Dems think, but not the way they think. You'd think he'd have learned his lesson when he threw Rumsfeld to the Dipocrats after the 06 election, but No-o-o!) Of course, the media is in full braying pack of hounds mode, so if that all the news you get, you'd think it was the end of democracy in the United States.
But this isn't about democracy, and neither is it about "those poor, poor US Attorneys"--this is about naked ambition and a lust for power that overrides all other considerations, such as the good of the country. The Democrats are so convinced that only they can govern the country that they will stop at nothing and stoop to anything to get power, remain in power and obtain more power.
And all you "I'm gonna send the Republicans a message" idiots from the 06 elections? Well, you're going to get what you voted for--good and hard. Thank you so much for sharing it with the rest of us. Morons.
