Bush League Justice

Nothing new in here for those idiots (like myself) who are fascinated with the machinations of the Bush crime family, and read about this stuff until our heads explode, but Dan Abrams of MSNBC just concluded a series, Bush League Justice, which did a very credible job of explaining some of the ways that the current occupant of the White House has worked overtime to destroy the Department of Justice and to subvert the separation of powers.

Dirty. Partisan. Illegal. Unconstitutional. Unethical. Immoral. Just Plain Wrong.

Thanks to Crooks and Liars for the links. They're worth watching,and revisiting any time you feel the need for outrage.

Makes you wonder--where would we be if the media had been doing its job for the last seven years?

New link: 2004 interview with Don Siegelman (2 videos-20, from News From Underground (HT-Buzzflash)

Siegelman is very candid and convincing as he details the theft of his election in 2000. Republicans see "scruples" as a contraction for "screw people", and they do themselves proud here. When you own the whole apparatus, you don't have to be slick.
