02/15/2006 Entry: "Doing the impossible: Giving lawyers a bad name"

"Gonzales' legal justifications of the spy program are similarly preposterous, proving only something else we already knew: that for a fancy title and an office filled with expensive leather furniture, you can find a shyster to argue damn near anything. They practically had to tear White House mouthpieces off Richard Nixon's leg before he embarked upon that helicopter ride into the sunset."

and

"In essence, the Bush White House pretends that the congressional resolution giving the president the authority to use force against the perpetrators of 9/11 enables him to set aside any laws he deems inconvenient and to put the U.S. Constitution on indefinite hold. Or that even if Congress intended no such thing, the presidentís powers as commander-in-chief trump the Bill of Rights anyway. Itís as tortuous and inside-out an argument as itís possible to imagine, to all intents and purposes establishing the president as an elected military dictator."
Will the real conservatives please stand up? by Gene Lyons, February 15, 2006

Gene Lyons nails it yet again.

Isn't the top lawyer in the land supposed to protect the people from lawbreakers, in and out of the government? This might sound corny, but the bush junta (those in it like Gonzales who might be capable of understanding this) really needs to remember whom they work for.
