If you took a few moments to go read through newspaper editorials from the USA circa 1993-2000, you'd discover that what editorial boards thought was the most important thing to maintain for a functioning constitutional government was having an attorney general who was independent from the president. This stick was used to beat Janet Reno with regularly to encourage her to launch yet another investigation into even more crap which amounted to nothing.

Now it's pretty much accepted that Alberto Gonzales is Bush's personal attorney, and that the JD isn't going to bother looking at White House activities. Nor, of course, will Congress.

We have a wee problem.
