Congress Upset About FBI On Capitol Hill? You Reap What You Sow

by Steve

It’s very entertaining to see the House and Senate GOP become unnerved at the thought that BushCo reserves the right to pillage through their Capitol Hill offices whenever it wants to. Those of us on the center-left who have been concerned about the brown shirt drift of this Executive branch for years will have little sympathy for members of Congress who are now having heartburn that BushCo is turning the FBI loose on them. Bill Frist and Denny Hastert had no problem with unfettered imperial power and actually lapped it up with the rest of the Stepford cultists, as long as that power was aimed away from them. But now that BushCo has given an example to Capitol Hill that the unitary and unfettered executive has the right to piss down Congress’s leg as well, suddenly bootlickers like Frist and Hastert are concerned? Welcome to our world, you slugs.

Look, Jefferson appears to be a crook, although nowhere near as much of a slime ball as the institutionalized graft and corruption of Tom DeLay, John Boehner, Bob Ney, Richard Pombo, Duke Cunningham, John Doolittle, Bill "Mr. HCA" Frist, and the rest. The FBI should have come after him, since Jefferson ignored subpoenas and thought that accepting cash for favors was SOP. Screw him. But I hope that Frist, Hastert, and Boehner have many sleepless nights from now on, because they have earned them with their Kool-Aid drinking these last five years.
