  •  We were played for suckers (4.00)
    at the end of the Clinton Era when we stupidly went along with a plan to destroy the independent counsel laws.  The were used against us to maximum effect and then we unilaterally disarmed when they came to power.

    Since then its been feeding time at the trough

    •  I dunno (none)
      I'm just imagining investigation after investigation into subjects like: Swift Boat lies; Hillary hatred; Daschle nonsense; and 'do Democrats really eat Christian babies by the light of the Moon?', etc. etc.

      And oh my God, I just thought of that Schiavo mess the GOP pulled; I can only imagine what they could be like if they appointed some 'independent' counsel on it.

      Now if independent counsel meant they had to hire two investigators, with no political affiliations, and approved by both parties, that might be different.

      But while the GOP has any sort of a majority, I think it might not be so bad they don't have this stick to so easily whack the Dems with....

    •  Indeed (none)
      I haven't any doubt that part of the reason for going after Clinton based on a "blow job" was intended to be so ridiculous that everyone would want the laws repealed. Afterall, these are the laws that almost brought down the previous Republican Cabal with their Iran-Contra treason.

      •  And one should note (3.50)
        That Abramoff played a roll in Iran-Contra. As the head of Citizens for America, a lobbying arm of the Reagan White House, Jack worked with Ollie to line up the Contra speaking tour.
