What Could Holder be Thinking
The US Attorneys, including the replacements Bush/Rove installed to be good Bushies, are being asked to stay on (http://www.swamppolitics.com/news/politi...). I'm ok with Fitzgerald for a lot of reasons. However, this includes such notables as Mary Beth Buchanan and Alice Martin. Not only are they not being investigated for possible prosecution (Martin's role in the the Siegelman case is one of the things Conyers wants to question Rove about, for example) but they are not even being fired. The opportunity to pick up the remains of Carol Lamm's prosecutions are being passed by; Jerry Lewis gets a pass. Politically motivated investigations and prosecutions of Democrats are ok, it seems. This isn't post partisan, it's pretending that Republican partisanship doesn't matter. That's delusional.
