Yay! I Can Heart Rahm Emanuel Again!

Boy, Rahm-bo, you really had me scared for a minute. I watched you tell your buddy, Snuffleupagus or whatever his name is, that you didn’t think investigation or prosecution of Bush officials would be necessary or beneficial to a country yearning to move forward. GAH!!! Nooooooo…How is my bed-wetting liberal self supposed to continue my heretofore seat-wetting crush on you???

Ah, now I see. Thanks, NY Times for the clarification!

On Sunday, Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff, said on the ABC News program “This Week” that “those who devised policy” also “should not be prosecuted.” But administration officials said Monday that Mr. Emanuel had meant the officials who ordered the policies carried out, not the lawyers who provided the legal rationale.

Three Bush administration lawyers who signed memos, John C. Yoo, Jay S. Bybee and Steven G. Bradbury, are the subjects of a coming report by the Justice Department’s ethics office that officials say is sharply critical of their work. The ethics office has the power to recommend disbarment or other professional penalties or, less likely, to refer cases for criminal prosecution.

The administration has also not ruled out prosecuting anyone who exceeded the legal guidelines, and officials have discussed appointing a special prosecutor. One option might be giving the job to John H. Durham, a federal prosecutor who has spent 15 months investigating the C.I.A.’s destruction of videotapes of harsh interrogations.

Now if only we can learn that Obama’s infuriating desire to continue the Bush policy regarding Bagram is really just a way to rendition these motherfuckers to the hell they created.
