Doesn't anyone wonder why the Bush-wahs are systematically firing Federal Prosecutors who DARE to turn their gaze in Republican directions?

Here's a clue, for example -- they do NOT want any more of these:

Libby Guilty of Lying in C.I.A. Leak Case
Ex-Aide to Cheney Convicted on 4 of 5 Charges

OK, just in case you haven't noticed, here's a background update:

Former Prosecutor Says Departure Was Pressured

WASHINGTON, March 5 — The former federal prosecutor in Maryland said Monday that he was forced out in early 2005 because of political pressure stemming from public corruption investigations involving associates of the state’s governor, a Republican.

“There was direct pressure not to pursue these investigations,” said the former prosecutor, Thomas M. DiBiagio. “The practical impact was to intimidate my office and shut down the investigations.”

Mr. DiBiagio, a controversial figure who clashed with a number of Maryland politicians, had never publicly discussed the reasons behind his departure. But he agreed to an interview with The New York Times because he said he was concerned about what he saw as similarities with the recent firings of eight United States attorneys.


ANSWER: Does the word "GETAWAY" bring up any memories of old Westerns where the nasty money guys in suits -- guys who were killing farmers for railroad land and stomping on the faces of widows and children -- remember those guys hauling ass out of town one step ahead of the Good Guys, the ones led by some guy who wore a tin star and who believed in the United States and its Constitution?

Yeah, like that. Scumbags on the run.
