Comment on the US Attorney Firings Scandal
Tags: politics

I've been following the case, too [reply is to the Kolog]. The Bush Administration probably has the advantage in court, because the friggin' senators should've read the bill they voted into law which removed the necessity for Senate confirmation of US federal attorneys. They can't retroactively change the law. They can, however, raise a stir.

This said, US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has proved himself to be little more than a partisan-loyalist hack. He'll meekly finish his term, and hopefully never work in government again, and as politics moves on, I expect a "Bush stain" -- Bush's idiot loyalists won't be wanted by the next Republican generation. And people will be even more pissed after the eighth year in Iraq than the fourth, and blame Bush 43.

It so annoys me when conservatives say, "Hey, Clinton fired 93!" When a new administration comes in, it's custom to send in a letter of resignation -- he didn't fire anyone for prosecuting a Duke Cunningham, for example.
