The appointee will inevitably be charged, among other things, with investigating the firing of eight U. S. attorneys, possible perjury by Gonzales and others who testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and whatever additional matters Senate Democrats’ fertile imaginations can pack into the special prosecutor’s charter. Grand juries will be convened, subpoenas issued, witnesses badgered, documents demanded from the White House, and so on, through the full repertoire of special prosecutors’ antics.
Is this what the Democrats really want? Their approval ratings are already in the toilet and they think that going down this path is going to help them? Hopefully President Bush will nominate some one who will be able to stand up to the Democrats and tell them where to shove it.
