Bush Cannot Be Allowed to Get Away With What He's Done to America

I'm in total agreement with Obama's sentiment that it's time for America to heal itself and move forward, but I certainly hope he's not so fixated on that sentiment that he allows the Bush/Cheney gang to get away with the damage that they've done to America.

Of course, there are those who are going to insist that we have so many challenges before us that we can't be distracted by engaging in vengeance, but this is not a matter of vengeance, it's a simple matter of governmental housekeeping.

Just as it is necessary to refurbish and restore our national monuments from time to time, it is even more important that our American ideals be maintained in pristine condition. Thus, by allowing the Bush/Cheney administration to get away with what they've done to those ideals, and the damage they've done to America's image around the world, allowing them to walk away with impunity would be the moral equivalent of allowing them to leave graffiti behind on the Statue of Liberty.

Bradley Schlozman: Subject of Grand Jury Referral. And then there's ... Judiciary Hearing will Reprise Plame Affair

The Wall Street Journal always makes fun reading... especially if one enjoys the schizophrenic jolt of skipping between the Opinion Editorial pages and the "news."

So what news did yesterday's WSJ bring?

Seems that Bradley Schlozman, the interim U.A. attorney in charge of the Kansas City, Missouri office, a one-year that overlapped the 2006 elections, may be questioned again, in terms of his "testimony" during the 2007 investigations into the U.S. Attorney Scandal.
