    The nervousness and lies with which the White House is handling this scandal, iit's starting to seem more likely that what at first appeared as overzealous political loyalty was actually part of a campaign to corrupt our Democratic process. The good news is: The Democrats are in power, and will follow the example set by the Republicans under Clinton to leave no stone unturned to find out the truth. Who knows, at the end of this scandal investigation, we might learn that Bush slept with Rice.

    About one-third of the nearly four dozen U.S. attorney's jobs that have changed hands since President Bush began his second term have been filled by the White House and the Justice Department with trusted administration insiders.

    The people chosen as chief federal prosecutors on a temporary or permanent basis since early 2005 include 10 senior aides to Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, according to an analysis of government records. Several came from the White House or other government agencies. Some lacked experience as prosecutors or had no connection to the districts in which they were sent to work, the records and biographical information show.

    The new U.S. attorneys filled vacancies created through natural turnover in addition to the firings of eight prosecutors last year that have prompted a political uproar and congressional investigations.

    No other administration in contemporary times has had such a clear pattern of filling chief prosecutors' jobs with its own staff members, said experts on U.S. attorney's offices. Those experts said the emphasis in appointments traditionally has been on local roots and deference to home-state senators, whose support has been crucial to win confirmation of the nominees.

    Clinton appointed one of his ex students to take over the Whitewater investigation the issues raised by the Post are business as usual for patronage appointees. I wonder if the unnames DOJ sources are the same ones who won't allow Berger to get his polygraph test. ;)
