Not good enough

By Creature

Yesterday the administration's nominee for attorney general, Michael Mukasey, sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee hoping to clarify his answer on the legality of waterboarding. An answer which should not be in doubt, yet still Mukasey can't shake his case of the Gonzaleses and unequivocally say that waterboarding is, in fact, illegal. He will say it's "repugnant" and that's enough for wavering Republicans, and probably enough for spineless Democrats as well.

We have lost our moral anchor.
