Yeah. "Hacks" meaning, apparently, "any Democrat involved in any investigation of any Republican, for any reason, at any time." Seem to recall the "hack" rule being invoked a number of times during the Bush admin, don't you?
OTOH, we have Todd Palin et al simply refusing to respond to legal subpoenas, because he (by "he" I mean the RNC's lawyers, of course) dosn't think the investigation is "legitimate."
That's so cool. If I'm ever subpoenaed, I'm totally going with that. Because, you know, I'm a liberal and there are bound to be some conservatives somewhere in that court system. Ah, lawlessness! Hooray for thugs! It's so independent minded! Fuck you, United States and your so called "laws", we're all mavericks now!
So we have a new Republican law and order principle in play: subpoenas don't mean shit. Do what you want, and if you get investigated tell 'em to fuck off. Let them come and arrest you, if they dare. Then you can threaten civil war and send out your ditto heads to rough some people up. Because of the "outrageous witch-hunt."
Hey Jubelum, is this a principle you're totally behind now? Will you support Obama's right to use his Justice Department to fuck over conservative candidates and organizations, then blow off any subsequent investigation as "illegitimate"? Cause that ain't hackery, which you hate, that's straight up fascism, which........?
