We Are Better Than This
"There is a problem of trying to manipulate the courts to get a particular result. There is a particular problem if you are trying to do so retroactively." — Bruce Fein
"I know due process when I see it. I know fair proceedings when I see them. And this ain’t it." — Thomas Sullivan
"Five percent of the inmates in Guantanimo were picked up by US troops. The rest of them were picked up by tribal leaders in Afghanistan and Pakistan…" — Rear Admiral John Hudson
We are better than this as Americans. The rule of law is more important than covering George Bush’s butt in the short term. And I will be damned if I am just going to roll over. There will be accountability for this mess — and it starts with the election in November.
Whatever it takes. However long it takes. The Democrats are going to regain control of Congress. However much work is required, I will do it. Whatever messaging needs to be done, I will write it. Whatever it takes. From this day forward, getting out the Democratic vote is the single most important thing on my agenda between now and November — but I’m going to need everyone’s help. I have damn well had enough.
