I didn’t think I’d ever see Democrats…

…so up in arms over Republicans firing Republicans.

I have a couple of observations about the current brouhaha over the Bush administration firing eight of its own U.S. attorneys.

1.) All U.S. attorneys are POLITICAL appointees. The reason they were appointed in the first place was political. It should come as no surprise when some are replaced for political reasons.

2.) They all serve at the convenience of the President. They can be fired for any reason at any time.

3.) The only charge I’ve heard so far from anyone that I would take seriously is the one that people were fired for pursuing cases against fellow Republicans. If this charge sticks, cialis sales and I’ll be pretty pissed that the Republicans were protecting there own. Otherwise, viagra sale cialis this mostly seems like media-driven bullshit.

4.) There is no excuse for anyone in the administration to lie. Period. If Gonzales purposefully lied to Congress and the press he needs to go.

    Sounds like the Libby thing wasn’t enough, so stir the pot till someone else floats to the top.

    Actually, it looks as if two of them were let go for not pursuing spurious charges against Democrats before the 2006 elections.

    Carol Lay is the key here. Her pursuit of the Duke Cunningham/ Brent Wilkes/ Dusty Foggo fiasco had folks running scared. If a few more heads had to roll as cover so be it.

    And how do the folks who are saying that Linda Clifford doesn’t have enough experience feel about Rove’s protege being annointed in Arkansas.

    There’s a lot going on here and it’s pretty clear from the DOJ emails that have been released that Gonzalez is guilty of, at least, lying to Congress.

    I had heard about the accusation of “spurious” charges, but I didn’t say anything about that because only a jury can decide if a case was spurious or not.
