A quote from madpainter on Digg, regarding the ongoing furor over Gonzales’ dismissal of federal attorneys:

Just goes to show you something about the Bush administration.

You can start a war based on lies, and there will be no protests.
You can unilaterally remove the head of a sovereign nation because you didn’t like him, and the world will look the other way.
You can mismanage the biggest natural disaster in this country’s history.
You can usurp the Constitutional rights of millions of people and get away with it.
You can let your VP and all his friends make billions in a war about oil and nobody will care.

But if you screw around with a couple of lawyers, then you are going down.
