    "Contrary to testimony" is a nice objective touch.

    Guess they forgot to delete that one. God knows what else will come up if they find the lost e-mails of Rove.
  3. Apparently, they serve at the pleasure of Karl Rove.

    It's great the myriad ways the shit-for-brains Washington press corps has come up with more polite terms to describe when these liars lie.

    Lord knows they have to develop a new, different phrase every day.

    Actually, I guess you could call it Part Quatre

    From the story:
    The Justice Department has produced documents at least four times in recent weeks, at times indicating that the latest documents represent the last known material relevant to he inquiry.

    Anything other emails, guys? You sure?

    You're going to be seeing a lot of doctoral dissertations and books on how this administration and the national press corps has implemented language. It's gone far beyond Nixonian "hearts and minds," "silent majority," "peace with honor."

    Ah, a pleasant thought. :)
  10. Parade rest!
  11. This is the damndest thing I've read yet.

    Remember that we're in the WAR BETWEEN CIVILIZATIONS! and the DOJ is part of the first line of defense to whom we have to hand over our civil liberties so the brown people won't come and kill us all. Of course, that can't get in the way of crony hires and resume-padding.

    But, but, but... they serve at the pleasure of the president:

    Philip Heymann, a Harvard law professor and former deputy attorney general under Reno, said the Justice Department has always been vulnerable to allegations of playing politics with prosecutions.

    "But these allegations are vastly greater and more credible," Heymann said. "Really good attorney generals go out of their way to keep appearances straight as well as realities. I think something serious has been going on, and I think it's terribly important that it come out.

    "If politicians were going to the White House and saying they didn't want this or that case brought, and the White House was letting the U.S. attorneys know by firing them, it would be terribly immoral and destructive."
