Timmy Is Angry

Balloon Juice co-blogger Tim F. has two brutal posts up today. The first, Baby Steps to Authoritarianism points out that the Bush administration has yet to rule out any warrantless wiretapping technique, including domestic-to-domestic calls.
Question: is there anything that Gonzales has explicitly ruled out? Extralegal executions? Heh heh, trick question. Even if Gonzales does categorically rule something out he can always clarify his answer later. Senate testimony will go on meaning diddly-squat until the Republican Senate stops giving fellatio and calling it oversight.

"Clarify" I think deserves to be in quotation marks.

The second post is on the breaking news that Bush authorized the leaking of the Plame memos even as his office was decrying leaks. The legal issues are complex, but ultimately irrelevant, because in the court of public opinion, it shows Bush to be a flip-flopping hypocrite who used national security documents to further his personal political agenda. Remember McClellan's famous ultimatum: "[I]f anyone in this administration was involved in it [the Plame leak], they would no longer be in this administration."

Looks like a bunch of resignations should be coming.

Nothing will happen.

Instead of impeachment, Repub Congress will help W find the definition of "is" that he needs...
