Alice Martin’s War
And one day, law officers charge onto the floor of the legislature as it is in session to serve warrants on a large block of members, and as it turns out just the members he’s most eager to get rid of. Lukashenko’s Belarus, perhaps? Or some forgotten banana republic?

Well, no, actually. This all really happened in George W. Bush’s America. In one of the fifty states. Indeed, in the first state by roll call: Alabama.


My former partner, Michael Mukasey, appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee with a promise that the tools of the Justice Department would not be used for partisan political games while he was installed as Attorney General. But Alice Martin has made a cuckold of her boss the Attorney General. And now it’s time for Congressional oversight to shine a very bright light on Ms. Martin, her still uninvestigated perjury problems and the various political schemes that dot her political landscape–from a Democratic governor to a small army of Democratic legislators. Martin has concluded that the tools of justice exist to enable her to do the dirty work of a political party and to make good her own escape into party politics when her term as U.S. attorney lapses, as it will in only a few months. Her betrayal of the public trust is breath-taking, and it should not go without a challenge.
When you think about the scope of this, it takes ones breath away. The Bush crime family has destroyed this country. In regards the related story, I said:
Bush, Cheney and Rove have done more harm to this nation than we can possibly imagine.
It would seem that this is proving to be self evident with each passing day.

Read Scott Horton's piece, Alice Martin’s War. Read his previous post on the 60 minutes segment the other week. Then ask your congress critter to 'splain exactly how this can be happening in the U.S.A. in 2008, and why it is that they still think that impeachment is (and should remain) "off the table".


  • I had no idea that Alabama has such a proliferation of Performance Artists aka: Alice Martin. The deep-south underbelly's : OH Alice--I do Declare!!!
