Binge and Purge

There's a terrific clip from MSNBC's Countdown over at Crooks & Liars about the U.S. Attorney purge.

Constitutional law scholar Jonathan Turley has a great bit at the end, complete with a line about how U.S. Attorneys are supposed to be independent, and not have to "look over their shoulders for Karl Rove coming after them with a wood chipper."

Saw the original and cheered.

What I'd like to see is Turley offering some advice and counsel. I wish he'd tell how to mount a legal assault so broad, fierce and frightening that Bush, Cheney and the rest of The Gang That Couldn't Think Straight would spend every waking hour for the next 18 months in conferences with their lawyers, making depositions, at grand jury proceedings, hearings and trials.

As Mom used to say, idle hands are the devil's playthings. I want to keep them too occupied to cause any more trouble than they've already caused.

Maybe while they're distracted we could get the troops out of Iraq, straighten out Afghanistan and go after OBL, and do something about the minimum wage and our various huge deficits.
