A good heads up on executive arrogance and democratic hypocrisy. Gonzalez should resign…for firing 8 federal prosecutors? I guess prosecutors appointed during dem admins should be appointed for life, lest CNN and Hillary Clinton call for their resignation. Too many people in this country are eager to become victims.

Whiny victim Exhibit 1

The supposed scandal this week is that Mr. Bush had been informed last fall that some U.S. Attorneys had been less than vigorous in pursuing voter-fraud cases and that the President had made the point to Attorney General Albert Gonzales. Voter fraud strikes at the heart of democratic institutions, and it was entirely appropriate for Mr. Bush–or any President–to insist that his appointees act energetically against it.

Take sacked U.S. Attorney John McKay from Washington state. In 2004, the Governor’s race was decided in favor of Democrat Christine Gregoire by 129-votes on a third recount. As the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and other media outlets reported, some of the “voters” were deceased, others were registered in storage-rental facilities, and still others were convicted felons. More than 100 ballots were “discovered” in a Seattle warehouse. None of this constitutes proof that the election was stolen. But it should have been enough to prompt Mr. McKay, a Democrat, to investigate, something he declined to do, apparently on grounds that he had better things to do

But Gonzalez should resign for this?

  • Yeah this would be “Legislative Arrogance.” I think Democrats in Congress consider the ‘Scooter’ Libby conviction as a license to try to target every member of the administration they can get their hands on.

  • Executive arrogance is a double entendre, I am referencing some of the blogs I’ve read out there and this is what critics keep saying about the admin…I didn’t put a question mark because if you want to refer to executive arrogance then the precedent here is the Clinton admin. Regarding the legislature and their pals in the media, you’re right…this is passive aggressive ankle biting at its worst.

  • Good post JohnnyB…the hypocrisy of Hillary in this whole matter is flooring.

    So how does one go about getting listed under a state in the blogroll? I see ya’ll don’t have anyone in VA. =)

  • Dude…CT, you’re right down the road. The “State” blogs are a list of blogs that post a pretty good percentage (but not all) of their posts are about state and local politics.

    It’s sort of an ad hoc Senate. And a work in progress. Logipundit itself doesn’t focus on any particular localitie’s politics and its authors are spread out, so that’s why I have nothing under VA so far.

    You’re linked though!

    Guys, check out CT’s pics from the recent “anti-war” protest.
