On the Attorney General Scandal

Some call it the grand unifying corruption scandal. Maybe that's so. Josh Marshall says that worrying whether your US Attorney is prosecuting only Democrats and laying off Republicans is a bright line we'd never see crossed. To wit:
"What we seem to see are repeated cases in which US Attorneys were fired for not pursuing bogus prosecutions of persons of the opposite party. Or vice versa."
That's about right to me.

But let's think about this for a minute. Maybe we Democrats are getting off pretty easy here. I mean, sure, apparently the Federal Government views it as their job to squash our every activity, and yes, they're moving to ensure that no corrupt Republican is left behind from the cash gravy train--but wait. Given that they view us as treasonous, mentally diseased, the modern heirs to fascism, and even the Party of Death--Death!--I say we're getting off easy. They could really have taken the gloves us, I suppose.
