Once in a while, Dana gets it right.

In the interest of being fair, I should remind everyone that even Rohrabacher is right on occasion. This time, he directed his stings at General Alberto Gonzales. According to a March 16 story from Attorney The Hill...
There’s been a pattern of arrogance in this Administration,” Rohrabacher said. “They’ve demonstrated contempt for Congressional oversight and now we see a misuse of FBI authority, heavy-handed firings of U.S. Attorneys along with the ruthless prosecution of Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Compean.
Now that Congress is exercising that oversight, calling not only Gonzales to testify but also most of his immediate staff, even offering immunity to Monica Goodling, I wonder if Rohrabacher is willing to join the Republican chorus calling for Gonzales to resign, as he seemed to be hinting. It's time to find out if he is the independent free spirit he says he is.

Dana Rohrabacher wants your habeas corpse

I understand that. Just as he supports the Taliban and a few other crazy ideas.

Even in this case, he recognized the problem (Gonzales's lack of leadership) but did it for the wrong reasons (lack of immigration enforcement rather than protecting our civil liberties.).

I wonder if he has gotten to the place yet where Rove will classify him as a "traitor to the party" as he did with Tancredo.
