“OPEN WARFARE”….Steve Benen on Purgegate:
It seems part of the administration’s problem with this fiasco is an inability to find a convenient scapegoat. Gonzales blames Sampson, McNulty blames Goodling, the White House blames McNulty, Republicans on the Hill blame Gonzales, and no one on the right has figured out a way to blame Dems, the media, or MoveOn.org. It’s a wild west, every-man-for-himself environment … and these guys are yet to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
According to the New York Daily News, it’s “open warfare” over at the Justice Department. And the hearings haven’t even started yet.
