“LET THE MIGHTY EAGLE SOAR”….This

“LET THE MIGHTY EAGLE SOAR”….This Guardian article about John Ashcroft’s, um, peculiar style of running the Department of Justice is a year old, but I just happened to run across it today whilst trying to educate myself about the connection between Ashcroft and calico cats (thanks a lot, Digby). It’s an oldie, but, yes, it’s a goodie. Take a couple of minutes and go check it out.

(There’s even some video of Ashcroft doing his own imitation of a Vegas lounge lizard. It’s worth the price of admission all by itself.)
