Quote Of The Day

Seattle Post-Intelligencer editorial on the missing White House e-mails:

…[A]ccording to The Post, “security was so lax that e-mail could be modified by anyone on the computer network until the middle of 2005.” Naturally, in a related e-mail scandal, the Republican National Committee, which has promised to dig around its archives for e-mails sent by White House officials (such as Karl Rove) using RNC e-mail accounts, also decided to simply stop doing so.

This behavior, from the administration and the party that backs the Protect America Act and the government’s desire to spy and archive our every move or thought expressed, would be screamingly hilarious were it not so galling.

More scrutiny for us citizens, less scrutiny for the government. Just the way it should be. After all, they’re the ones with nothing to hide, right?

(h/t to The All-Seeing Eye Of Froomkin again – his column was a goldmine today)

    I’m sure they figure, “Heck if Meirs and Bolton don’t have to respond to subpoenas why should we?”

    Don’t the people see that we they don’t respond to subpoenas they are emboldening the lawbreakers!

    I think we will just have to remove the ribbon that the Republican party wants that says they are the party of “law and order.”
    That will show ’em!
