It's About Torture

by Deacon Blues

Senate Republicans, who wholly endorsed George W. Bush's politicization of the Justice Department and fully supported his desire to name anybody he wanted to head the Office of Legal Counsel as long as the person was a good water-carrying right wing hack, now want to filibuster Obama's selection of Dawn Johnsen to head the OLC.

Yeah, I know; low-hanging fruit.

This isn't about her position on abortion, because Bush stacked the DOJ with Kool Aid drinking true believers from the evangelical "universities" without a peep from the Democrats until they ran the place into the ground. No, this is about preventing Obama from installing Johnsen in a position where she could indict the Bush administration for war crimes, after the Europeans shame us into doing something.
