The hidden spine

Greenwald to Gonzales;

After disabusing readers of the notion that Committee Chairman Arlen Specter might hold Gonzales's feet to the fire, Greenwald nails not just Gonzalez's attitude on the stand, but the spiritual crisis facing the American experiment as a result of the right wing radicals in power:

"Of course Gonzales begins his Opening Statement by quoting Osama bin Laden and Zawahri. We used to quote Madison, Jefferson and Lincoln to decide what the principles of our Government are going to be. Now we quote Al Qaeda. The Administration wants Al Qaeda and its speeches to dictate the type of Government we have. It is the centerpiece of everything they do and say."

A left-right combo: *smack* *smack* and down he goes… the Repugs are out for the count.. in my dreams.

I'd love to see footage of this on the evening news. Perhaps, one day.
