GG on Mukasey

Rather than do a half assed job of this I defer to the always eloquent Glenn Greenwald

What Judge Mukasey believes is, without question, radical and disturbing. His beliefs — from the power of the President to violate Congressional statutes to limitless war powers to the authority to order barbaric interrogation methods — would have been unthinkable six years ago in an Attorney General. But now, it and he are well within mainstream Beltway ideology, thanks to some combination of acquiescence and active support from the core of both political parties. And there is something deeply artificial and manipulative about a Congress that has decided to permit all of these things to take root to pretend suddenly that they are so offended by them, that what Mukasey believes crosses their bright lines so clearly that he cannot be confirmed.
