Andrew Sullivan on the US Attorney Scandal

Trying to sail out again into National News...

Here's what Andrew Sullivan has to say about the ever-expanding US Attorney scandal:
The central question is whether the Bush administration has used the U.S. Attorneys as a systematic weapon in targeting the opposition party, rather than rooting out corruption and malfeasance wherever it appears. The natural inference from the evidence so far - and the conflicting stories from the administration - is that the eight fired attorneys were not being partisan enough.
He links to that statistical showing the evidence of unbalanced prosecutions, but adds that the inbalance occurs at the local level, below the radar of the national press. Calls it "classic Rove."

How anybody could be following this story and not believe at this point that these attorneys were fired for political reasons is beyond me.
