The coming Justice Department disaster

It now seems that the Monica Goodlings of this “administration” have been planting partisan “sleeper cells” among the career civil service ranks — the very positions that are supposed to be non-partisan and are therefore protected in their tenure by law. What this means is that the DoJ and other agencies of the executive branch are filled with people who understand that their role in the next Democratic administration — which will be prohibited by law from rooting them out and firing them for political reasons — is, as Atrios says, to take that administration down from the inside.

The only way to rid ourselves of them now may be… to conduct what the false-equivalency merchants of conservative media will compare to exactly the type of politically-motivated purge that the Republicans have been conducting, and for which we now condemn them. And if it happens, expect more “pox on both their houses!” spin — after all, conservatives want Americans to believe that government is the source of all their problems.
