"Sweet, Sweet Oversight"

House Democrats once again postpone a vote on holding Josh Bolten and Harriet Miers in contempt of congress for refusing to testify in the US Attorneys matter. There’s some kind of nominal rationale for this, but an anonymous “top Democratic insider” says:

When we have the votes, we’ll go ahead with this. Right now, the votes are just not there.

Basically, we seem to have some fraidy-cat Dems out there who for some reason don’t think picking a fight with the White House over their gross distortions of the rule of law would be a smart idea and then we have a weak leadership that for some reason doesn’t want to bring them into line.
