So...its come out today that there will indeed be a criminal investigation into this whole mess about the destroyed CIA interrogation tapes. It is truly a sad commentary on one citizen's state of mind (mine) when the initial reaction is: and?
Nothing's going to come of this, just like f-all has come of the Scooter Libby, Karl Rove, and U.S. attorney investigations. Everyone in America pretty much takes it for granted at this point that the Bush administration is as crooked as a handmade shilelagh, and as a result no one is surprised by this latest scandal.
And so this is the state of our citizenry--rampant corruption has led to the collective ambivalence towards that very rampant corruption. May God help us all.
