Truth to Power

We’re gonna regret Mukasey

Mukasey confirmed with least support in 55 years

WASHINGTON – The Senate late Thursday narrowly confirmed former federal Judge Michael Mukasey as the 81st attorney general, giving the nominee the lowest level of congressional support of any Justice Department leader in the past half-century.

The 53-40 vote came after more than four hours of impassioned floor debate, and reflected an effort by Democrats to register their displeasure with Bush administration policies on torture and the boundaries of presidential power.</em>

“Reflected an effort”? What effort? They confirmed him, didn’t they? They gave the worst- and least popular- president in our nations history exactly what he wanted. Sniveling cowards, the democratic party. You’ve announced with this capitulation that Bush skates for the remainder of his term. No impeachment, no investigations, no end to torture.

You people give suck a bad name.
