It Never Ends

Just in case the last post didn't get you quite up in arms enough, here's a brief excerpt from a Sidney Blumenthal piece in yesterday's Salon.com dealing with the Gonzales resignation and the politicization of not only the Department of Justice, but pretty much the entire government by the partisan hacks of the Bush administration:

Typical of the political interference was the 2005 federal racketeering case against big tobacco companies in which government witnesses were suddenly withdrawn, suggested penalties lessened and lawyers ordered to read a weak closing statement prepared for them. Sharon Y. Eubanks, the 22-year veteran federal prosecutor in the case, revealed to the Washington Post in March 2007 that the chain of command ran directly through the attorney general's office. "The political people were pushing the buttons and ordering us to say what we said," Eubanks said. "And because of that, we failed to zealously represent the interests of the American public ... Political interference is happening at Justice across the department. When decisions are made now in the Bush attorney general's office, politics is the primary consideration ... The rule of law goes out the window."

Shameless, all of them. Can somebody please go to a closet or a side room or wherever they're being kept now and dust off the articles of impeachment? I understand Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a table that they need to be placed very prominently on.
