Ashcroft on the Daily Show

Boy, this does not make the Republicans look good. I don't think I have ever seen a high ranking government official look this bad (except Bush, of course). The most anemic defense of the Bush administration I have seen to date. The former Attorney General--highest ranking law enforcement agent in the country--defended Bush with a weak series of straw man arguments. "We can't protect our country by asking detainees 'pretty please'" or "it would be a sign of weakness to disagree with our President by saying that we won't defend ourselves." No one is saying either, dippy.

I think Jon felt bad for him. Clearly in over his head. And he was AG for 4 years. Now I feel better.
