Monica Goodling, another braindead DOJ lackey (it would be great to find someone at that department who at least had a pulse, wouldn't it? Reminds you of "Dawn of the Dead"), is testifying in front of the House Judiciary Committee as I write. David Margolis, a DOJ attorney, in transcripts released notes that as the controversy hit closer to home for the partisan crone, "She proceeded for the next, it seemed like forever, but it was probably only about 30 or 45 minutes, to bawl her eyes out and say, 'All I ever wanted to do was serve this president and this administration and this department."
And that, folks, tells the story of the whole problem with this administration. Monica, neocon stooge that she is, wanted to serve the president first, then the administration, by making the department as partisan as it could possibly be. I don't see "country" or "America's best interests" anywhere in there. I certainly don't see any concern for the American citizen.
It's all about the protecting the party, as any good fascist will tell you.
