No way out

The Justice Department has just announced the ouster of several US attorneys, one of whom is Carol Lam, the prosecutor who buried Republican shyster Randy Duke Cunningham and socked him away in the big house for 8+ years. Another is Kevin Ryan, who has been diligently investigating "the backdating of stock options granted to corporate executives." Clearly, these are two attorneys who cannot be viewed by the Bush administration as "business friendly."

But according to the Department, Lam and spent too much time investigating Republicans and big business and failed to bring in sufficient illegal immigration work.

The best part of this, as it often is, was Attorney General Alberto Gonzales answering critics of the layoff of Lam and Ryan.
We in no way politicize these decisions.
I think I just pissed myself.

You know, Mash, I've had a theory for awhile now about the broad scandal spectrum the Bush administration beems out across the land.

The Bush administration approach to governance can be viewed along these simple lines: Create scandals, both petty and grand, across such a wide range of departments that no one -- no one! -- can focus on even one of those scandals. I mean, you can try to focus, but when you do, the next one is rolled out and wham! you're on your heels again. It is a broad spectrum, full-scale scandal farm that leaves most people agog and unable to form coherent argument against the onslaught of vile policy debauchery. In fact, at some point, the only possible response is an hysterical cackle or maybe a mirthless sqwak. And a twitch or two.

I hate them.
