"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

CNN - QuickVote - Should special counsel investigate NSA eavesdropping?

Should a special counsel be appointed to investigate the legality of the Bush administration's eavesdropping program?
Yes 66% 83957 votes
No 34% 43971 votes
Total: 127928 votes

Just look to the present special counsel and the joke that that has become, as in originally set out to find out who "outed" a secret operative, when it still hasn't been and won't be if Fitzgerald has his way, whether or not Plame was a "secret" operative. So, now we're down to perjury.

The Clinton special counsel which swirled around endlessly with Ken Starr at the helm.

The Cisneros special counsel which has cost us, the taxpayer, over $20 million, the results of which are sealed from our viewing.

This has become a tool for political purposes and is a waste of time, energy, resources, reality and everything else that might serve a better purpose.
