"If the President Does It, That Means It's Not Illegal..."

And that bit of political wisdom comes directly to us from the now-infamous David Frost interview with Tricky Dick Nixon a couple of years after he had left the White House in shame. Proving that Tricky Dick remained unrepentant about his crimes in office.

I guess, then, that it's probably too much to ask that Baby Doc and the rest of the BFEE -- who are not fit to wash Tricky Dick's underwear -- to man up and confess that they believe the same way. All of them, every last motherfucker in the Bu$hco Maladministration.

However, we do have the privilege of seeing the next Attorney General publicly saying basically the same fucking thing in his hearing before the Senate committee hearings. So it's not like the bastards are trying to hide it from us. They're just counting on us remaining loyal sheeple who will nod our heads in agreement and tune in to Faux Noise for a quick uptake on what's happenin' out there in fair-and-balanced land.

Well, that's not going to happen. Not as long as those of us out here in Left Blogistan can still hit a keyboard with enough accuracy to call bullshit on them.

For an insightful and spot-on-the-money analysis of Mukasey's ideas, see John Nichols' Mukasey Is (Much) Worse Than Gonzales over at The Nation.

And make sure you encourage both of your own senators vote "NO!" on Mukasey when his appointment comes to the full senate for their "advice and consent".
