Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

wtf?  why would the white house do that?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/03/13/AR2007031300776.html


"The White House suggested two years ago that the Justice Department fire all 93 U.S. attorneys, according to e-mails and internal documents that the administration disclosed yesterday. Gonzales approved firing a smaller group of U.S. attorneys shortly after taking office in February 2005."

_why_?  I can understand getting rid of a few that are being a PITA, corrupt administrations do that all the time, but why all 93?  surely they weren't _all_ being diligent and effective?

does anyone know the background to that?

Patronage, most likely.

Self-patronage in this case:

It will be like the end of Casablanca, where the local cop is stuffing cash into his pocket while saying "I'm shocked that such things are going on! Shocked!"

Clinton fired every US attorney when he took office in 1993, except for one.  It was one of his first acts as president.  Apparently, the lesson is to fire them all right away, don't wait until your second term.
