Vive La Resistance

A writer for the American Conservative Union Foundation rebels against Gonzales, Bush and the entire attitude to the American rule of law they represent. Money quote:

National police and prosecutorial bureaucracies are notoriously difficult to control and uproot, as both Russian and French history adequately attest. The residents of the seven judicial districts affected by the new appointments do not yet have reason to remonstrate against an Executive who has, in the language of the Declaration of Independence, "sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance", but the new appointments, and the statute authorizing them, impair local self-government and overly aggrandize the federal executive.
