Activist US Attorney's=Good
Depending on who appointed them.
Last summer, we heard Congresswoman Bachmann and Mark Kennedy talk about activist judges and their nefarious plot to ensure that abortion is widely available and that same sex marriage would be legal, thus eroding the sanctity of marriage.
It was fun calling both the campaign offices of Congresswoman Bachmann and Mark Kennedy, asking for them to give me the name of an activist judge.
The silence was deafening.
Right wing pundits like Jason Lewis and Sean Hannity hammer home the fact that Bill Clinton fired all 93 US Attorney's in his first term. Lewis went so far as to allege that Clinton fired them all to cover up the fact that he wanted to fire the Little Rock Arkansas US Attorney, who had been investigating Clinton.
As Ed Schultz says, the righties have gone to "Rule #2 in the playbook, blame Bill Clinton".
Many of us are pissed off that 8 US Attorney's were fired without cause, other than the fact that they would not persecute Democrats, held true to standard jurisprudence, and upheld the rule of law, regardless of political affiliation.
I'm more concerned about the other 85 that are "doing a good job", following the Bush and neo-con GOP plan to an end.
When US Senator's start calling US Attorney's and attempt to get their opponents investigated, we have a serious problem in the judiciary.
Subpoena all those sons of bitches, put them all under oath and figure out what is really going on here.
It's sad that when I utter the words "Justice Department" I actually use the little quote's above my head...sad and very scary!
