Let's see if they have any balls at all.

The House is voting today as to whether to hold Miers and Bolten in contempt. This is a no-brainer, even if nothing comes of it. They subpoena somebody. That person says, (in effect) "Screw you, I'm not showing up. What are you going to do about it?" Well, when people do that to a legislative body, they HAVE to do something about it, if only to assert a principle.

And how completely above the law do these people think they are? I mean, the sheer gall is astounding: "I don't have to answer a subpoena. I ONCE worked in the White House, and that means I get executive privilege." Where in the hell did THAT come from? Has anybody ever MADE such a claim before?

IF Congress actually has the stones to hold the contemptuous in contempt, Bush's D.A. will probably refuse to prosecute. But that's ok - let the nation see - again - how completely lawless the Bush Administration is. For the record of history, if for nothing else.
