Mukasy Watch

I just wanted to briefly comment on the Mukasey situation with Congress.

In a way, it's kind of chickenshit that Senators are using Mukasey as a proxy for doing their real job. By Mukasey admitting that waterboarding is, indeed, torture and illegal he's really forced to then prosecute government officials up to and including Cheney/Bush. If he says it's illegal but doesn't prosecute then he's lost credibility. He's a loser no matter what he does.

If Congress people were doing their job, they'd do their Constitutional duty of prosecuting those government officials themselves (impeachment and removal from office) rather than using an underlying punching bag to do their bidding.
