Politics, Politics

Politicians know how to mess up anything.

Here's a story about some Democrats possibly hinging their confirmation of Judge Michael Mukasey for attorney general on whether they get information about the firing of a number of U.S. attorneys -- a related yet not really related issue.

It's interesting, because Mukasey was heralded as a good pick because he would get bipartisan support. ... Politicians will roadblock something they agree with, just to try to get their own way on something else.

It's sort of like John Edwards speaking in Iowa a day or two ago with the rest of the Democratic presidential hopefuls, saying that Congress should not authorize any funding for the war in Iraq that doesn't include a timetable for withdrawal of troops.

I realize that that's the game of politics, but it's disturbing nonetheless.
