Person of the Day
MARCH 21, 2007
SEN. PATRICK LEAHY, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. President Bush’s speech last night demeaned the Senate inquiry into the Federal Attorney scandal, calling it a partisan fishing expedition (after trying to turn federal judicial system into an unprecedented political war room) stating that Karl Rove and Harriet Miers would not be permitted to testify under oath. Leahy quickly announced that there definitely would be subpoenas. The Senate security camera immediately picked up evidence of a growing spine.
