The title of this article was too good to pass up. Upon further investigation the article turned out to be quite logical and excellent. It makes me happy to read.
I haven't much to say on the U.S. Attorney firings. Only this: the word "scandal" has become so misused and far flung that it makes me want to poke my eyes out. I am sick and tired of every little thing being dredged up as a terrible, calamitous scandal. There has got to be an end of this. I don't give a flying monkey's butt if Bush fires his entire administration and does not tell us why. Eight attorneys is hardly the end of the world.
In the end I understand why scandals keep getting thrown right and, well, right. It's because Bush is a weak executive. People will follow a strong man into the jaws of death for a totally bogus reason. But they will scoff at a weak man until they turn blue in the face even when he's right. No I am not saying Bush is right about everything -- or anything for that matter. I am saying that it does not matter when he's right. He's weak and in the real world, that's what people notice.
