It Can Wait

This seems like a very odd day to make this statement:

Attorney General Michael Mukasey vowed anew Thursday to crack down on crooked politicians and public officials, dismissing critics who accuse the Justice Department of letting partisan loyalties interfere with corruption cases.


"It's often in the interest of someone to charge politicization whenever a prominent public figure is investigated or prosecuted," Mukasey said during a noontime speech at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco. "I find it notable that they make these accusations in the media, rather than before a court."

Tell it to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

This guy has turned out to be far worse than even I imagined, smoothly continuing the Bush Justice Department's primary mission which was partisan prosecutions. Spitzer's investigation stinks to high heaven.

They need to stay out of the corruption prosecution business until a new president is sworn in. Their credibility on the matter is just a tad frayed.
