Quis Custodiet?

Excerpted from Chris Floyd’s essay at Empire Burlesque on Bush’s attempts to muzzle the CIA’s inspector general:

And so we ask again: why do the Democrats in Congress — or indeed, any figure in the Establishment, Democrat or Republican — continue to treat this criminal gang as the legitimate government of a constitutional republic? How can any Senator or Representative go about their daily business while these brutal apes in tailored suits degrade the nation with their torture, their tyranny, their war crimes? Why are they not moving heaven and earth, using all the powers and legal procedures at their command, to oust Bush and Cheney and the whole sick crew from office?

The answer, of course, is that they do not really object to torture, tyranny or military aggression.

Sadly, Chris is right.
