For reasons that elude me, Republicans have stood idly by for years while George Bush and Dick Cheney pull out every pseudo-legal stop to evade the will of the people, while slowly transforming a once vibrant political party into what may soon become a fractured, regional joke for a generation. Here's the latest (H/T RS):
NYT -- In an executive order published last week in the Federal Register, Mr. Bush said that each agency must have a regulatory policy office run by a political appointee, to supervise the development of rules and documents providing guidance to regulated industries. The White House will thus have a gatekeeper in each agency to analyze the costs and the benefits of new rules and to make sure the agencies carry out the president’s priorities. This strengthens the hand of the White House in shaping rules that have, in the past, often been generated by civil servants and scientific experts.
Heads up to the legislative and legal branch, that includes Democrats, but most especially Republicans: For the good of the nation and your political skin, you need to think about how you're going to shut these neoclowns down, or look for a new line of work. They've proven themselves utterly inept at everything they touch. They have a well established track record of leaving ruined lives, dead or maimed bodies, and terminal political careers, in their wake. You or your constituents could well find yourselves in any of those three categories if this shit is allowed to continue. Pissed off people make unreliable voters. Capiche?
