You'll be relieved to know that Pat Boone has weighed in on the U.S. attorney firing scandal.
In an April 9 NewsMax column, Boone states:
So what's the big beef about Attorney General Gonzales firing a few U.S. attorneys? Doesn't he have the right? Of course he does. Does he have to justify the firing to anybody, specifically the Democrat Congress? Of course not. Does the Congress have the right to question or investigate the firings — as if Democrats haven't done the same thing many times when they've had the majority? Of course not.
Of course, since nobody has the right to question when U.S. attorneys are fired, what does Boone do? That's right -- question the firing of attorneys under the Clinton administration, claiming that they were "motivated almost certainly by anxiety over some of their investigations pending in what became known as the Whitewater scandal." Nowhere does Boone mention that the Clintons were eventually cleared in the Whitewater scandal.
A few liberal bloggers serve up the category of "It's OK If You're A Republican." That appears to be the message Boone is offering.
