Sampson Revealed the True Bush Philsophy

"The distinction between 'political' and 'performance-rated' reasons for removing a United States attorney is, in my view, largely artificial."
---Kyle Sampson, under oath.

We know that's your philosophy, Kyle. But that's not how "justice" is supposed to work. We know that your statement reflects the entire ethos of the Bush administration. Thanks for summing it up.

Politics trumps everything.

How nice of you to give us that very clear picture. "Performance-related" is the same as "political." Doing the right thing in the pursuit of justice and punishing criminals is a function of politics.

Has there ever been a clearer explanation of the theory of Rovian governance? I mean other than that he "goes home and rips the heads off of small animals." Did anyone notice how easily those words rolled off of Rove's tongue. They sounded just like all of his other lies. I wonder which of them we should believe? I choose to believe that there are many headless small animals in Karl's compost.

The "small animal" line is much more credible than anything Alberto Gonzalez has said in the past few weeks....I mean than he EVER said.

All Democrats have to do is swear these people in and let them talk. They'll tell us their morally bankrupt philosophy.

I used to think I was a cynic.
