Quick-draw Mukasey

So, the Eliot Spitzer investigation needed a personal okey-dokey from Attorney General Mike Mukasey?

Because the focus was a high-ranking government official, prosecutors were required to seek the approval of the United States attorney general to proceed. Once they secured that permission, the investigation moved forward.

But, Big Mike doesn’t have the time, or energy, or moral certititude, to investigate waterboarding? Or actually enforce a contempt of Congress citation?

Too bad George Tenet or Peter Goss didn’t hire call girls. Or Harriett Miers hire a gigolo, although the mere image of that might want to make me throw up in my mouth.
