On the matter of the US Attorneys, I've got just a couple of really simple questions: If the 8 or nine who were fired were fired in effect--as it now appears--for insufficient loyalty to the Bushevik/GOP political agenda, and for inattention to the bare, base political needs of partisan operations on the ground,
WHY THE FUCK WEREN'T THE OTHER 85 OR SO FIRED, TOO? Were the eight or nine who got canned the ONLY ones with ANY integrity? If you're one of the others, how does it feel to wake up, and go to work, knowing you're sufficiently, reliably corrupt a party hack that Alberto Gonzales and Karl Rove say your job IS NOT in jeopardy? I'd hang myself with a bed-sheet, before I'd live like that.
And then ya gotta ask: WHAT THE FUCK WERE THE OTHER UN-FIRED US ATTYs DOING SO THEY DIDN'T GET AXED? TO WHAT DID THEY HAVE TO AGREE TO, TO STAY OFF THAT LIST? Who'd they have to fuck up for the Party bigwigs, and how badly?
And finally: AND WHY THE FUCK HAS NOBODY ON ANY FUCKING CONGRESSIONAL HEARING PANEL ASKED ANY OF THESE INCREDIBLY FUCKING SIMPLE QUESTIONS?????
