WorldNetDaily's Doug Powers signs onto to the discredited 8-equals-93 meme. From his March 19 column:
The Democrat freak-out to the eight firings was immediate, loud and annoying – I mean, worse than usual. Some Republicans are now getting on board in calling for Gonzales' firing or resignation.
What did we hear from Democrats when Bill Clinton had Janet ''Why's That Guy Going Into The Women's Restroom?'' Reno fire all U.S. attorneys – all 93 of them? We heard nothing except the sound of crickets, pierced occasionally by intern giggles and ice rattling in Ted Kennedy's Chivas tumbler.
Of course, as we've detailed, there is a difference between the replacement of attorneys at the start of a new administration, as Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush also did (which Powers doesn't note), and firing attorneys the administration itself first appointed for apparently not being partisan enough.
That link in the Powers excerpt goes to a 1998 National Review article by Robert Bork, who simlarly claimed that "suddenly fired all 93 U.S. attorneys" but not that Reagan got rid of 'em too.
