U.S. Attorneys

| | Comments (0)
I cannot bring myself to get worked up about this. At worst, the President directly authorized the firings of people he has the legitimate right and reason to fire. Out of all the lame "scandals" the Democrats have dredged up over the past few years, this has to be the lamest.

And the funniest part, of course, is that Clinton fired every U.S. Attorney when he took office, and for purely partisan political reasons. Bush kept them on, firing them only when he had actual cause. So the lesson here is clear: don't wait until you have a reason to fire people for political reasons, just do it right away when you take office, because for some reason that is more acceptable. slashdot.org
