Liz Cheney Gets Comeuppance from Kenneth Starr

Pinch me!   Mz Liz and her white sheeted gang from Keep America Safe are being criticized, strongly, by members of her own party!

Ken Starr, not a man I admire thanks to his relentless pursuit of Bill Clinton during his presidency said 
"They knew it was going to be controversial, but they deserve commendation,” Starr said of the Justice Department lawyers. “They do not deserve criticism at all... This was very unwise and really an out of bounds characterization and challenge to good, honorable lawyers."  more from Politico.
"Four years ago, senior Bush administration officials fired nine diligent, competent, respected, Republican-appointed federal prosecutors because they were deemed insufficiently conservative to be trusted with such high office. It was a disgrace and the resulting scandal, which we now know as the U.S. Attorney scandal, set back the Justice Department for years.  Now another nine government laywers, this time Democrat-appointed ones, are under siegeby some of the very same conservative operatives who devoured their own in 2005 and 2006."     more from The Atlantic

Speaking of devouring, Stephen Colbert did this unwitting parody of one of the  original DOJ lawyers in the 2006 Attorney scandal.  He might as well re-run it today.
