Are You Enjoying the US Attorney Firing Scandal?

posted by on March 22 at 9:28 AM

Glad to see Alberto “Torture” Gonzelez on the verge of losing his job? Thrilled at the prospect of Bushies—loyal Bushies like Rove and Miers—being forced to answer questions under oath and in public? Enjoy watching President Bush nearly crap his pants during that press conference yesterday?

Then send a few buck to the folks that made this scandal what it is today—uh, not the Bushies that corrupted and politicized the Justice Department. No, send some cash to the fearless political wonks, tireless bloggers, and kick-ass muckrakers at TalkingPointsMemo. Josh Marshal and his crew have been on this since day one. Bush and his cronies wouldn’t be in deep shit today if it weren’t for TPM.

Send TalkingPointsMemo some dough so they can keep up the great work.

Ed is bad ass about Sound Trqansit - in my opinion they are on a real roll.

I drive down Rainier every day - AND IT IS HAPPENING ED - thanks to Sims and nickels and the guy from Perced County

where the hell has Ed been? OH, not his district, the 37th

I donated and told them you & The Stranger were my inspiration to send $$. I reposted the links to your blog and their contribution page on my blog and on myspace.

I'm EUPHORIC - and I hope the suffering is just beginning for that bastard. So of course I'm donating some cash. If they can come up with a word thats the Latino equivalent for 'uncle tom' I'll send more.

I heard this story on Sam Seder's show a couple of nights ago and then saw it last night on americablog. It's an unbelievably fucked up piece of this scandal. I can't believe it hasn't made bigger news: More on Dick Cheney's connections to Duke Cunningham scandal

I don't understand why there is any issue at all with the US attorney firings. They serve at the pleasure of the President. No reasons are needed for them to be let go.

Alas, another attempt at the manufactured scandal in order to get Karl Rove 'frogmarched' out of the Whitehouse.

Good luck with that.
