Exactly. From this morning's NYT letters to the editor:
Re “Defying the Imperial Presidency” (editorial, July 26):
The House Judiciary Committee, by voting to hold Harriet E. Miers, the former White House counsel, and Joshua B. Bolten, President Bush’s chief of staff, in contempt, did what the Constitution demanded of it. It reclaimed its oversight responsibilities, which this imperial presidency refuses to recognize.
But before we become too intoxicated by this reaffirmation of our democratic principles, let us not forget that all 17 Republican members of this committee voted against holding these two in contempt.
This is an invitation, perhaps, for the voting public to hold the Republicans in contempt when Election Day arrives in November 2008.
