I guess I can understand how Sen. Kerry wouldn’t have wanted to discuss impeachment of AG Gonzales if the Dems can’t even whip the votes together for a vote of no confidence. How disappointing.
Interesting to hear how Republicans were afraid of “political retribution” for voting no confidence. Good grief, folks, this was your get-out-of-jail-free card. Now the Dems can hang Gonzales around your neck like the millstone he is — if they’re smart and aggressive enough, never a sure thing.
Joe Lieberman, of course, voted to sustain the filibuster. How’s it going down there, Connecticut voters? Happy with your decision? Hey, just 66 more months of this. (I can’t wait for the next CT-Sen approval poll.)
More important than all of this: How does the country get through 18 more months of a blatantly corrupt Justice Department? How can there be any faith whatsoever in the decisions they make, in their choice of prosecutions, in the rule of law itself?
