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.
