Rats, sinking ships, fleedom

Funny. I always feel sorry for the underdog, no matter how bad a dog it's been. Looks like Abu Gonzales, after being hung out to twist in the wind, is getting no support from anyone, not even the person who is responsible for the mess he's in.

He's gone. And so is his Number Two, McNulty. While the Republicans make noises about the Democrats overreaching themselves, I fear the real lesson behind this is going unlearned. In a democracy, people are appointed to their jobs based on their competence, not their personal loyalties. If you break that rule, you end up with a lot of incompetent cronies who put their personal relationships above their professional responsibilities. Then you get the mess that is FEMA, Iraq, Katrina, Walter Reed, Halliburton, and ultimately it ends up in all our backyards.
