He had no choice but to resign, the Pubes were trying to stall the impeachment until closer to November.
Oh and a Bushie Judge threw out the Dem suit against McCain for misusing the public campaign...or whatever finances
It is true a judge is just a lawyer that blew someone up on high

If it were a real democracy and not a demockcrazy Muckassy, US AG would not have been brought up by Skunk Shewmur and voted in by Diane FineStain.
The Senate neoFascist Skunk and Stain are worse than or as bad as Lieberman and Clinton.
Lets bring those bastards down along with all the neoFascist republicans who would not lift a finger to punish their own.
At least they do run like hell on the senate floor when senator craig asks which way to the bathroom.
Congrats Ohio democrats. America first, party second.

On a similar note, the republicans in Missippi district 1, another long term republican stronghold went down in flames:
The most significant political news from yesterday, by far, was Democrat Travis Childers' commanding victory in the First District of Mississippi ...
This is a devastating, crushing, soul-shattering loss for the Republican Party. They had no excuses to lose this race, yet they did, and they lost quite badly. Republican leadership should be absolutely terrified...and it seems they are. The terse Boehner is obviously pissed:
"We’ve got to do a better job,’’ added Boehner, who said unspecified changes to the National Republican Congressional Committee would be on the agenda when GOP leaders meet later in the day.
NRCC Chairman Tom Cole sounds like he's ready to clean out his desk:
NRCC Chairman Tom Cole of Oklahoma admitted he is on the hot seat. Asked if he might be replaced, Cole said, "Nobody’s talking to me about anything like that yet, but I said ‘yet.’’’
And one of his predecessors, the retiring Tom Davis, sounds like he can't wait to get the hell out:
Republicans were downbeat after their conference meeting. Asked about the GOP mood, Rep. Thomas M. Davis III , R-Va., stomped his foot on the Capitol corridor floor. "This is the floor. We’re underneath the floor,’’ said Davis, a former NRCC chairman who is not seeking re-election.
The Republican Party is at its lowest ebb in literally decades, perhaps since 1974.
(Daily Kos). There is some good NEWS out there if one looks for it.

Face it, it is a lot easier to argue about whether a sex act occurred and whether it was wrong. It used to be like that about violating the Fourth Amendment, FISA, Geneva Conventions and numerous other guidelines of legal and moral conduct.
We suffer from a public discourse (invented by the Republicans, suffered to continue by the Democrats and condoned by the refusal of the press) that has been so coarsened as to create an equivalency between arguments against and in favor of clearly illegal conduct. The networks go no further than he said/she said arguments on such clear topics as water boarding, illegal spying and so forth. No one calls bullshit. After a while, you create moral ambiguity.

Be careful what you wish for. Would you have moral disambiguity in the form of the right Rev. McCain's Pastor saying "The catholic church is the great whore"?
It can and did happen ... well ... not in the eyes of the MSM righty tighties ... but I did hear Chris Matthews say it was offensive to him cause he is a catholic.
They will we true journalists when it is offensive to them because of other reasons true journalists would know about.
And a point Brad shines on in this thread is that party should not prevent impeachment for impeachable offenses.
That is the patriotic truth that republicans have lost. And that the democrats don't want to attach fearing the would look like the republicans of the Clinton years.
Republicans that would impeach a democrat for having his fly open ...
... but republicans who would never impeach a craig closet republican for ... well lets move on and just say the democrats don't what to look like republicans who have a scooter pardon atmosphere doing a big spread ...

I knew there was something fishy about this.
Larisa nails it, he was Spitzered
Also, local media reported that authorities staged a raid on the attorney general's offices on Wednesday, carting away documents as part of an undisclosed investigation.
They're covering up the home loan credit scandal, the same thing that Spitzer was working on in New York!!!

Yeah Phil, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that they're ripping us off, wringing out every sweat pore in our bodies wherever they can find a buck.
FDR and Wellstone, where are your spirits?

Floridiot and Phil,
Ok, it is worth a look ... but he doesn't have as much game as he has macaca ...
If he fucks up as a public servant the goes down ...
Your points were considered by the jury because his lawyers presented your defense.
Only problem is dear brothers, they jury rejected that defense ...
NIXON IS GUILTY is what the old, sane republican jury decided, and what this new modern sane democratic jury decided.
End of case my dear brothers.

Hey everybody - Say hi to that familiar face - that of Attorney Ted Olson who represented G.W. Bush in "Gore.vs.Bush!" It was announced today that Ted is representing the Payday Lenders whom Mark Dann just prevailed against. Former Attorney General Mark Dann's First Assistant Attorney General, Tom Winters has become Ohio's Acting Attorney General. Tom Winters used to be Coingate Tom Noe's Lobbyist. Noe is still serving time in a federal prison.
Mark Dann had literally just prevailed on putting a cap on Payday Lenders within 48 hours or so of his resignation.
Let's see if our Acting Attorney General, Tom Winters who used to be Tom Noe's Lobbyist can step up to Ted, G.W. Bush's attorney from Gore vs. Bush.
Ohio nuked the cat that was controlling the mice.
We SHOULD NOT STOP HERE.
Time to IMPEACH - Bush, Cheney,Mukasey and Rice. Time to send the cops after J. Kenneth Blackwell and Karl Rove.
