I am going to assume my readers have at least a basic interest in news and current affairs, and that everyone reading this will at least be familiar with the rudiments of the U. S. Attorney-Gate scandal now enveloping beaner Attorney General Alberto Gonzales ("Habeas corpus? We don't need no stinkin' habeas corpus!") and the Bush White House, specifically Karl Rove. It is also beginning to appear that President George W. Bush is in it right up to his jug ears. They're now talking about a Special Prosecutor, who with any luck might end up filing a big Ken Starr-Style report two or three years after Jug leaves office. (If he leaves office, but that's a topic for another time.)
Basically, the White House, i.e. Karl Rove and maybe Bush himself if he was sober that day, acting through through Bush groupie Harriet Miers, told Gonzales to put pressure on the 93 United States Attorneys' offices around the country to A) Investigate and indict corrupt and immoral Democratic politicians, a B) Ignore and cover up for corrupt and immoral Republican politicians. Eight Federal prosecutors who refused to play ball and persisted in investigating and indicting GOP crooks as opposed to Democratic crooks were dismissed from office.
Is this a corrupt practice? Of course it is. The United States government and all their agencies in their entirety are corrupt. What part about this can we possibly not fail to understand after growing up in this society since the Roosevelt dictatorship which began in 1933?
There is also a lot of media hullabaloo over the alleged White House plan to fire all 93 U. S. Attorneys and replace them with Republican political hacks. The fact that Bill Clinton, acting through his bull dyke Attorney General Janet Reno, actually did that very thing in 1993, seems to have been flushed down the memory hole.
According to anAssociated Press article, Gonzales told reporters, "I acknowledge that mistakes were made here. I accept that responsibility." But having "accepted his responsibility," he generously lets himself off the hook with a slap on the wrist. (Maybe even a Presidential pardon if it comes to that.)
Of course he's not going to resign. Jeez, Rummy managed to hold on for six years before Bush was finally forced to get rid of him for criminal incompetence and negligence. You can't get anybody out of the Bush administration short of blasting them out with dynamite. (Note to the paranoid sociopaths at the FBI Secret Service: figure of speech, guys, figure of speech.)
Etc. etc. etc. Basically, Bush and his little Jewish neocon friends used the machinery of justice and the Federal government as a weapon with which to persecute their political opponents and anyone who dissents from their deranged policies. SER-PRISE, SER-PRISE, Sergeant Carter!
Is this a "high crime and misdemeanor?" Probably. Will anyone, Alberto Gonzales or Karl Rove or even Jug-Ears himself, be impeached or indicted or tried for any of this? Of course not. Don't be silly. Congress doesn't have the balls to impeach a wino, never mind a neocon, and everyone knows it. That drunken midget in the White House is hurtling us like an epileptic comet towards a civilization-ending war with Iran, and we are all sitting here staring at him like a deer in the headlights, paralyzed, like a rabbit with a snake. In another few weeks the Iran war will begin, and all of this Federal prosecutor nonsense will be forgotten as we're all queueing up at the pumps for $7.00 a gallon gas, if we can get any.
We deserve what we get.
