Late last night, by a vote of 53-40, Michael Mukasey was confirmed as the next Attorney General. I think it is a pretty safe bet that he will continue to allow Bush/Cheney to run roughshod over the Constitution, ignore the laws of the land and torture whomever they choose. Of course, it will all be done in the great war on terror in order to protect us from the hordes of non christianist hordes massed upon our borders just itching to kill us in our sleep, rape our mothers, wives and daughters all the while outlawing cold beer and pork BBQ.
We should not overlook the special efforts of Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein, without whose decision to support Bush and Mukasey this would not have been possible. Thanks, really guys, you shouldn't have.
