You Want A War? You Got One!

Am I the only out praying for Arlen Specter's (left) cancer to come back and eliminate him?

WASHINGTON - A Senate panel, following the House's lead, authorized subpoenas Thursday for White House political adviser Karl Rove and other top aides involved in the firing of federal prosecutors.

This is what America voted for last year: grandstanding inquisitions and constant political bickering.

The Senate Judiciary Committee decided by voice vote to approve the subpoenas as Republicans and Democrats sparred over whether to press a showdown with President Bush over the ousters of eight U.S. attorneys.

Go ahead, press it. For a change, Bush is firing back. I reckon he found his backbone in the pocket of his other pants.

The Senate panel voted to approve subpoenas for Rove, former White House counsel Harriet Miers and her former deputy, William Kelley. The House subcommittee Tuesday authorized subpoenas for Rove, Miers and their deputies. (H/T - Yahoo!)

Congress is itching to order a subpoena for Rove? Wow, I am truly shocked. Even the dullest moonbat can see what is happening here. The Democrats despise Rove. As such, they intend to drag him into chambers, secure him under oath, and hope that he perjures himself. Because perjury is such a mortal sin within the DNC, right Mr. Clinton?

The fact of the matter is that this "scandal" is nothing of the sort. The President has the power to dismiss any U.S. attorney for any reason. Dave from Garfield Ridge tells us why:
It is Myers v. United States (1926) that came to mind when this latest Beltway baseball kerfluffle first broke. Myers determined that the President has "the exclusive power of removing executive officers of the United States whom he has appointed by and with the advice and consent of the Senate."
Now, can we please get back to something a little more interesting, like Rosie O'Donnell's back hair?
