John Ashcroft, the man who lost an election to a dead guy, wants to quit. Good.
Ashcroft and the Justice Department have done more to erode the rights of everyday citizens over the last four years than anyone else. Whether they were following instructions from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue or just following Ashcroft's drive to make a name for himselve besides "least likely to succeed in an election against an inanimate object," we may never know.
All I can hope for is that the replacement has more respect for our Constitutional values.
