The Hell With “Protect the Boss at All Costs”

The GOP is caving to Rove’s pressure tactics — protect the boss at all costs, and the hell with the damage to the Republic. Glenn’s post on the cult of personality that is the Republican Party has never been more relevant than today.

It’s time to contact your representatives in the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Senate Intelligence Committee, the House Judiciary Committee, and the House Select Committee on Intelligence.

Just a little reminder that some Americans still hold their Constitution more dear than the whims of the person who happens to sit in the Oval Office for a brief tenure. "L’etat c’est moi" is not our national motto — nor should it be.

The Founders of this great nation did not overthrow the rule of a King only to have another petulant George take up the banner over two hundred years later. As Benjamin Franklin so wisely said, those who would sacrifice liberty for security, deserve neither.
