Hallelujah! Ashcroft On the Way Out

I don’t doubt his patriotism or his sincerity, since I’m sure that he is convinced that he’s been doing his best to save us from terrorists. I don’t care about his prayer groups or his taste in music, which were major causes for outrage among some Washingtonians. But I do care about his disregard for the Constitution and his willingness to substitute arbitrary edicts for legal procedures. And I’ll be very, very, glad to see the back of him. Yes, I’m referring to John Ashcroft, who has announced his resignation from the post of Attorney General of the United States. Would that it had been much, much earlier.
