Re: Hill Hysteria?


On the brouhaha over the dismissal of U.S. attorneys:  As usual (or should I say as always?), Andy McCarthy in this NRO essay puts things in proper perspective.  His summary:


So we have classic Washington farce. The politicians on Capitol Hill theatrically castigate the politicians in the administration for making political decisions about political appointees based on political considerations. The politicians in the administration reply, “That would never happen,” before conceding that it precisely happened … without their knowledge, of course. And the political press is aghast.
