Yet Another Fabricated Scandal – This Time With Subpoenas
The Congressional Jackass Caucus really wants Karl “Sith Lord” Rove. Having gone wide left on their previous attempt to frog march him out of the White House using Patrick Fitzgerald as a cattle prod, Head Judiciary Jackass John Conyers has now given himself the authority to issue subpoenas for Sith Lord Rove and former White House Counsel Harriet Miers.
John Conyers, Dusty Harry, and New York’s Junior Senator Chuck Schumer have done their level best to make the recent firings of eight US Attorneys a federal case. They’re upset at the fact that W broke with tradition and ended the terms of said US Attorneys before their prescribed tenures were up. Sith Lord Rove evidently made some email commentary on the issue some time ago and upon hearing that Rove may have said something at the White House Watercooler about US Attorneys who were subsequently dumped, the Congressional Jackasses and their more than willing MSM accomplices began to froth at the mouth – literally.
There’s only one real problem with the impetus behind their frothing. Every single US Attorney is a political appointee. They serve, like all other appointees, “at the pleasure of the President of the United States”. In the interest of further educating the Democratic left – that means W can fire them at any time for any reason. Its what private sector employers like to call “At will employment”.
Most hard left Democrats don’t understand this concept. Many of them come from a Union Thug environment where it’s easier to amend the Constitution than it is to fire a lazy employee.
And mentioning the Constitution, may I be so bold as to remind the Congressional Jackasses that there are in fact three co-equal branches of government. For those who missed that High School Civics lecture, remember the fact that US Attorneys serve under the Executive Branch. The Legislative Branch – where all Congressional Jackasses reside – doesn’t have the authority to hire or fire anyone under the Executive Branch. That’s W’s job. Ain’t Separation of Powers grand?
W has made an effort to make the requested individuals available to consult with the Congressional Jackasses. Under no circumstance will he allow them to be paraded before the MSM cameras and subjected to a show trial for which DC is famous. The Jackasses may be so bold as to take W to court on the issue – where they’ll lose.
Schumer, Dusty Harry, Pelosi and Conyers have greatly over-reached on this issue. That’s normally when bad decisions come back to bite. Now that will be entertainment.
Here endeth the lesson.
