Attorneygate rolls on

Posted By on Sun, Mar 11, 2007 at 10:34 AM

The LA Times today front-pages the U.S. atttorney coup. It's mostly about improper interference by the White House in prosecutorial decisions and an effort to mount a politically motivated election-time probe in Washington, but Karl Rove's stooge, Tim Griffin, gets the obligatory reference for his installation in LR. Given the back story, think about it: Could you possibly accept at face value any politically tinged investigation Griffin might mount come election season in 2008 as the product of a full and fair assessment of the facts? Of course you couldn't. Find new work, Tim. Let there be justice.

Brummett, meanwhile, ponders the possible reasons for this ham-handed political activity by the Bush administration. None of the possible explanations is good.

    Many Medicaid beneficiaries work full time — or more — but only a portion of the year, the lead author of the study noted. Among the group of recipients who aren't exempt but are currently working, he said, "we found they’re averaging about 35 hours per week. So it’s not that they’re opting to not work ... . It’s more a matter of whether they have consistent work or not.”
