Demand Accountability for Torture!

Mcjoan, one of my all-time heroines, informs us of the following:
Now viewed as obstructionists at best and bald-faced liars on healthcare reform at worst, the Republican leadership seems to have decided it cannot take the additional hit of Bush regime horrors coming out at this moment, and have taken the highly unusual step of writing to Attorney General Eric Holder warning him to call off his dogs. The nine Republican senators, Kit Bond (Mo.), Saxby Chambliss (Ga.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), Orrin Hatch (Utah) and Richard Burr (N.C.), Jon Kyl (Ariz.) Jeff Sessions (Ala.), John Cornyn (Texas) and Chuck Grassley (Iowa), are worried that however the scope of the prosecution is limited, all roads lead to Cheney.
Well now, isn't that just too damn bad?

If pursuit of lawbreakers in the interest of justice leads to Dick the Dick, so the fuck what? If he's innocent he gets a fair trial to prove it. If he's guilty, why in the name of all that is holy should he get off?

So, Kit, Saxby, Tom, Orrin, Richard, Jon, Jeff, John, and Chuck - justice obstructionists every one of you - why don't you just STFU?

If any gentle readers would like to sign a petition for Attorney General Holder to appoint a special prosecutor, you may do so here. I signed.
