I am so wondering if the Congress are taking a page from I, Claudius: "Let all the rot in the muddy log hatch out." Quite frankly, we can do better than the stammering emperor of the storybook. Let's remember that as was not the case with him, we still have the Republic, but not for long.

Rusticus - NYC

This commentary hits it right on the head...and I wish the Democrats would do the same to the current administration!
It has been very, very hard to watch the horror show of the Bush administration, from before day one, shred the Constitution, and the principles of our country.
When corporations rule the political system, this is the government that we get.
Well done PM. I hope any progressives band together and start giving Bush some hell!

Quedo

Excellent piece, thanks.

Also, please notice that the current news story about destroyed interrogation videos of Abu Zubaydah is about more even than torture, for not only were the videos destroyed but no transcripts were made of his interrogation. And why is that significant? Because Abu Zubaydah gave the US its main info on the 9/11 attacks. And that means that our whole "war on terror" is based on unrecorded torture sessions. Just given that one fact, how can any rational person not question the official story of 9/11 and, truthfully, everything else this administration has done?

JB Campbell

Nice piece, except for the lies about Joe McCarthy. "Snooping" was his job. The "slippery Commies" he was after had already condemned millions of friendly people to die from Communist murder and slavery. Those "slippery Commies" somehow got FDR to sign the Yalta Agreement, and Truman the Potsdam Agreement, which also gave us Communist China.

Eisenhower finally declared enough was enough? You mean the guy who ordered a million German POWs to be starved to death after the war? The guy who destroyed 13 million German civilians after the war? That guy? The guy who saved Stalin's dictatorhip, who had Stalin's photo on his desk? He thought enough was enough?

Let's hear about one lie that McCarthy told, one innocent person that he went after. People who attack Joe McCarthy are usually the slimeballs.

beamer

oh yeah,McCarthy was a true blue American hero-NOT...from what revisionist hole didja crawl JB ?
and from what book of lies do you hawk-up and spit the nonsense about Eisenhower and FDR ?..slippery commies indeed !..go drowned a pinko kitten

ronbon

Who the hell is this moron....oops, IDIOT, JBCampbell?

I just happen to be a WWII veteran and I have NO IDEA what rock this person crawled out from under. Joe McCarthy was a filthy, liar, bully and disgrace to our country. The pre-eminent newsman of the 20th Century, Edward R. Murrow, went toe-to-toe with that toad, and documented beyond any doubt the misdeeds and lies.

I suspect that Campbell may have an IQ and chronological age which are identical, somewhere in the 20-30 range. My God, what a crop of CRAP we have raised!

Rasputin

This guy is a protege of Schumer and Feinstein. That means that Hillary will support him too and with her most of the Dems.
The Reps we know that they will say amen to whoever protect all the crimes commited by Georgie and Dickie.
The results: Mukass won't be challenge and the torture methods will go on.

Bion

Well, ronbon, Harry Dexter White and Alger Hiss were both communist agents. And I doubt you were a WW2 vet, too. But your ad hominem attacks certainly do support your argument wonderfully.

oscarmadison

congress will do nothing to oust anybody
und you vill like it

impeach i guy they just fucking confirmed? get a grip soldier before i slap all of you

g. patton

chabuka

Maybe Shcumer, Di-Fi, Pelosi, Reid and a few of those idiot turds should also be impeached, thrown out, recalled...seems like they were told this would happen...Mukasey said he was a Bushie..he said the President was above the law....didn't Schumer and D-Fi hear that? I did and I wasn't at the damn hearing!!

ras

Ha ha ha...nonsense abounds.

After the fiasco of the 2000 election, we've had nothing but 7 years of crybaby rhetoric. If the GOP could get away with the 2000 crimes, they can get away with anything ~ and they have ~ and they will... Bush Inc. will slide into the political sunset only to have their minions of Corporate America carry on. Fox, Freepers, and the religious factions will continue to hound our Republic until we have our own civil war?

With a Hollywood mass producing brain dead movies, weak and spoiled Americans are enjoying a mind-numbing fix. Who cares anymore?

Got Viagra?

All the bs about liberal, left wing, right wing, conservatives, etc., is what Corporate America wants everyone to believe. There are only two types of people ~ good and bad. Where are we headed? What is next? When do we get a bar code or a chip placed on our bodies describing who and what we are? Step right up! The time is now!

America ~ going nowhere on a dead end street. Get your children to enjoy rice ~ because Americhina's future will depend on it.

Oh come on, you know this is Jewish thing. Born again red necks and Zionist Jew like Mukasey are hell bend on killing, torturing, tormenting, locking up as many muslims and Arabs as they can.

Christians used to get their rocks off by just persecuting blacks - but that just ain't done anymore. And of course Jews weren't even "white" in the day...but they sure are white now! And doing a hell of a job I might add.

DOGISMYTH

The Dems will not have the fortitude to deal with this issue, like everything else. No shit....hell yes we should be lashing out at this kind of "bullying" and outright refusal to comply with Congress. Its amazing that we can sit and watch this shit going on, and no one in power has the balls to do something about it. Just freaking amazing. Its over folks, that's all I can say!!

PS - Off topic, be wary of MoveOn's intentions. They have a petition on-line that states you will support Gore's position of global warming, and joining the new consortium of countries to set carbon limits. This means only one thing...more taxes on everything we use (remember, over 50% of our goods come from oil). Just another ploy to siphon billions away from those who need it most.

Mark Oller

Why is there no mention of the Larry Silverstein verdict? Robert Mukasey awarded Larry Silverstein 4.6 billion dollars for the 'terrorist' attacks on the World Trade Center.

Never mind that Silverstein admitted that he said "pull it," and WTC7 collapsed, or that it's collapse was announced 26 minutes early on the BBC. Perhaps, someone tried to send a message.

It's as if the bombing of Pearl Harbor was blamed on Arab terrorists crashing airliners into the ships, and an American samurai judge awarded Tojo and Hirohito billions of dollars in insurance. Then the samurai judge became attorney general, despite his support for torture in Japanese POW camps.

Dana Hatch

Nothing will change until we wake up and realize the Democrats are not on our side. They pay lip service to democratic ideals while grabbing corporate cash with the same zeal as their GOP colleagues. Whenever Bush wants to piss on the Constitution or Bill of Rights, the leading Democrats (Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, Feinstein, Clinton) hold his hand and shake his peepee when he's done.
