The Tally Ho

One more for the road

Ashcroft just wanted something for us to remember him by. On Friday, he pronounced that the federal courts --which ruled against the Bush administration and gave prisoners at Guantanamo legal protections--are endangering national security in the GWOT.

"The danger I see here is that intrusive judicial oversight and second-guessing of presidential determinations in these critical areas can put at risk the very security of our nation in a time of war."*

It seems that this man has seriously misunderstood the phrase "separation of powers" to mean: "This is the executive branch's power and you can't touch it". Is there any way we could fire this man, instead of just letting him quit?
