The Drumbeat Grows A Little Bit Louder

It's one thing for a running librul dog like myself to call for Judge Jay Bybee, one of the torture memo architects, to resign or be impeached, but when a rock of probity like the Salt City Tribune writes that . . .
"In its damning totality, the memorandum is an indictment of Bybee himself, evidence that he is morally, ethically and legally unfit to serve on the federal bench. His continued presence there is an affront to the integrity of the judiciary, to a nation founded on laws and ideals protecting human dignity, and to all Americans who once believed their government would never indulge in the same human rights violations we have long condemned in other countries.

Bybee, a graduate of Brigham Young University and its law school, should show himself capable of better judgment -- and of remorse -- by resigning his lifetime appointment. If he does not, Congress should begin impeachment proceedings to force him from the bench."
. . . then it's time to sit up and take notice.

And doesn't it just beat all that Dick Cheney has become the loudest voice for a full-pleged probe of the torture regime? But as a bona fide liar cannot be taken seriously.
