Dickwatch

Oh, this is just too good not to mention. Is Our Dear Dick more directly involved with the firing of U.S. Attorneys? And we're not talking about intervening on behalf of cronies, but what has Darth himself been up to? According to at-Largely (h/t, once again, Crooks and Liars), Carol Lam, one of the purged Attorneys, may have been investigating this:
"An explosive report, obtained in part by RAW STORY, and soon to be released by the Project on Government Oversight (POGO), fingers high-level officials both on the federal and local California level in allegations of influence-peddling ensnaring members of both parties.

According to documents and whistleblowers concerning a San Diego wastewater treatment plant to be built in Tijuana, Mexico,
Vice President Dick Cheney, Reps. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and Bob Filner (D-CA), and former congressman and current Republican congressional candidate Brian Bilbray have allegedly advanced the project despite serious concerns from those involved."

Cheney is alleged to have pressured the Department of Justice and the Council on Environmental Quality to give Bajagua a pass on clean water concerns and the no-bid contract for building the treatment facility.

You really must read the story. And dream.
