David Iglesias (sic?) wrote a book

Watching the 16 June 2008 "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and yucking it up at how Mr. Stewart doth smite the news media for being both two-faced and having a double standard as it concerns Senator Barack Obama, he showcased a former Republican federal Attorney who had written a book better than a year after he had been fired from his job by the AG Gonzalez led (In)Justice dept. As he described his and other federal attorneys' firings, it was politically motivated. The attorneys were doing their jobs following the law and were fired because they didn't toe the GW administration political line. Or act on behalf of the GOP preparing to engage in dirty tricks against Dem rivals. The book, "In Justice" is a must read.

Certainly among the reasons:
  • The willingness of GOP politicians to not follow the law.
  • Blatant corruption.
  • Failure to abide by the U.S. Constitution.
  • Refusal to insulate federal attorneys from political retribution.
To put it very bluntly, there is enough of an argument in this book to make a very good case of putting a president, soon to be former president in federal prison. Let us hope that is the case.
