Bush’s Termite Attack on America

The more important question underlying Bush’s firing of the eight U.S. attorneys has not been what they did to lose their jobs, but what the hundred-odd other U.S. attorneys did to keep theirs.

For a frightening part of the answer see this editorial in today’s New York Times. And bear in mind that Bush has been spreading his poison throughout the government — not just the relatively visible Justice Department.

How many thousands or tens of thousands of dedicated, competent public servants have been replaced by ideological and often corrupt hacks in the Park Service, the Government Printing Office, the Social Security Administration, the National Insitutes of Health, , the General Accounting Office, the Federal Highway Administration, OSHA, the Departments of Labor, Agriculture, Energy? On and on.

Most of our government is largely uncovered by the press and unknown to the electorate at large. This is where Bush has done the greater part of his damage to our nation, and it will take generations to undo.

The rather strange comment posted right above this one, starting at the second sentence, seems to be showing up in similar form all over the left blogosphere. It appeared on one of my posts several weeks ago, and my wife pointed out that she'd seen he same comment on a number of other lefty blogs. I don't know if you can call it trolling, but it's an oddball conspiracy theory.

I thought I had deleted the damned thing last night, but evidently I failed. Now it's gone. The same comment showed up to another post a week or so ago, and I blew it away then, too. For the curious, it's an off-topic link to an old Time story. I assume the purpose of it is to spam us with the URL of the sender's blog, which he or she has thoughtfully attached to his or her comment.
