Excerpt: Not since Nader has someone so wilfully dismantled
his reputation and legacy like McCain. Once a noble and battered
war hero, McCain has morphed from the integrity-driven
campaign hero of 2000 to the grovelling rightwing partisan of
2008 to the sorely bitter loser of 2009. Instead
of trying to repair his badly damaged brand, instead of reciprocating
Obama's post-election overtures, McCain chose,
after what must have been careful deliberation, to go on an all-out tirade...
McCain is the victim of his own blind judgment,
the victim of a decision to turn whore for a bid at the presidency.
Americans hate kicking a guy when he's down. The
public has, by and large, been very kind to its presidential runners-up.
But if McCain continues to dabble in over-the-top,
in-your-face, logic-be-damned style bloviating, his presence in the
history books may well be reduced to a diminishing
footnote: John McCain, bitter old man.
"This is not a matter involving civil damages.
It is a matter of high crimes, abuse of power, the subversion of our country's constitution and of our individual
rights and liberties. There should be no deal cut with Karl Rove that would provide him with any immunity whatsoever.
There is too much at stake. U.S. Attorneys were fired because they wouldn't take on political cases
and the DOJ was used as a political weapon to destroy people Karl Rove wanted out of the way. For Rove
not to be held accountable means others in the future will feel more free to abuse power."

being a Democrat, Link
"The US Attorneys, including the replacements
Bush/Rove installed to be good Bushies, are being asked to stay on. I'm OK with Fitzgerald for a lot
of reasons. However, this includes such notables as Mary Beth Buchanan and Alice Martin. Not only are they
not being investigated for possible prosecution (Martin's role in the the Siegelman case is one of the things
Conyers wants to question Rove about, for example) but they are not even being fired. The opportunity
to pick up the remains of Carol Lamm's prosecutions are being passed by; Jerry Lewis gets a pass. Politically
motivated investigations and prosecutions of Democrats are ok, it seems. This isn't post partisan, it's pretending
that Republican partisanship doesn't matter. That's delusional." -- Salmo, Link

Even as an Atheist I find it offensive that if

as part of a deception. It sends a message to

Nigel Haskett was working at a McDonald's in Little
