Waisting no time, Mukasey sworn in..privately
It’s interesting to me that BushCo chose to swear in their waterboarding-lovin’ new Attorney General in a private ceremony. From an AP article:
Retired federal judge Michael Mukasey was sworn in Friday as the nation’s 81st attorney general, filling a vacancy left when Alberto Gonzales resigned amid questions about his credibility.
Mukasey was sworn in at a private Justice Department ceremony about 16 hours after he narrowly won Senate confirmation. The oath was administered by Assistant Attorney General Lee Lofthus, who oversees the department’s management and budget operations.
Justice Department spokesman Brian Roehrkasse said Mukasey was joined by family members at the brief, closed-door ceremony. The ceremony took only about two to three minutes, and a small coterie of Justice staffers who attended it clapped afterwards, Roehrkasse said.
Such bullshit..this man’s confirmation shows how little balls the Democrats have. The picture is of Muskasey swearing in before the Senate committee..to tell the truth. We all know how THAT turned out.
