Prosecutor Purge leads straight to Bush
Dare I say it? The White House's partisan purge of federal prosecutors is the scandal that seems to be sticking -- and it makes sense, in spite of what appears (at least from my perspective) to be the public's general lack of interest in trying to sort out all the details, which are pretty darn boring, as far as political scandals go. No sex, no murder, no searing images of people stuck on their roofs for days, and no Bush administration abuse of power any more egregious than a dozen others. But this time, they crossed federal prosecutors, who got their jobs in the first place by being smart, skilled, and bloody tenacious. It only makes sense that when the Bush administration started messing with pit bulls, they finally got bit.
Today, the NY Times headline is White House Said to Prompt Firing of Prosecutors and the WaPo headline is Firings Had Genesis in White House. And Bush gets named.
