Resigning Over Doing Right?

Legal mumbo-jumbo and political mumbo-jumbo (arguably the two all time leading forms of mumbo-jumbo) came together in startling symmetry in the resignation of Bush campaign lawyer Benjamin L. Ginsberg who was also offering advice to the Swift Boat vet group behind the attack ads directed at Kerry’s military experience.

Ginsberg quit but insisted that nothing wrong had been done. In fact his letter of resignation (it really should be called a chapter or two of resignation) focuses more on the wrongs comitted by his opponents (legal and political) in this election.


Concentration is important!
