    Why would you care one iota about what happens to those in the Bush admin? It's not like they were ever on your side, unless you still support their brand of republicanism... Are you still a Bushy? One of the 23%?

    I encourage the likes of Conyers to immerse themselves in this endeavor.
    Go for it.
    Just do it.

    I think it's a moronic Stalinist move that will backfire.
    Were you this rabid when republicans were witch hunting Clinton?

    BFD that's what they always do. Bush fired almost all of Clinton's appointees and nobody cares because that's what they always do. This is different, and here's why:

    1. These attorneys were Bush's own appointees, not Clinton's.
    2. Some of them strongly believe that they were fired only because they refused to dig up criminal dirt on Democrats where none existed.
    3. Some of them strongly believe that they were fired only because they refused to call off criminal investigations on Republicans.
    4. The administration gave conflicting reasons why they were fired.

    Now, if that doesn't convince you that at least an investigation is in order, then your bull**** detector is in serious need of calibration my friend.

    Great response. Short and sweet. Don't forget that Mukasey appointed a special prosecutor to look into this. Yeah, this is such a NON-issue.

    Speaking of witch hunts, I wonder how Don Siegleman is doing?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    This has already been talked to death in a dozen other threads, but for what it's worth:

    1) So? It's neither unprecedented nor a big deal.
    2-3) So? If I ever get fired, I'll probably also think my boss is an incompetent ****head who fired me because I wouldn't do the dumb **** he wanted me to do .
    4) So? They don't need a reason or an excuse.

    I thought of you last semester - The professor for my Criminal Prosecution and Defense class had represented Paul Minor, and we talked a bit about the Siegelman case. Interesting stuff.

    Right, anyone who ever served in the Bush Administration was an evil person who adhered to a particular "brand of republicanism."

    Apparently you misunderstand the difference between your job at burger king and how and why a president can fire people.
