Judicial Watch Sues Halliburton, Cheney

Don’t I remember Judicial Watch from the Clinton years? Their website lists their involvement in Filegate, Chinagate, Loral, E-mailgate - hey, whose side are these guys on? Truth, justice, and the American Way, baby, if we can believe their own description:

"Judicial Watch is a non-profit, non-partisan public interest organization dedicated to reforming the legal and judicial systems and fighting government corruption. Judicial Watch was established in 1994 by Chairman and General Counsel, Larry Klayman, a trial attorney with twenty-two years experience. Utilizing the court system in a creative manner, Judicial Watch seeks to expose corruption at all levels of government and to bring the perpetrators to justice."

Can you give us a sound bite, fellows?

Judicial Watch is “described by Klayman as "fiercely nonpartisan but conservative”.

And what a wonderful world if that were true of all of us.

So now they are after Cheney for his role at Halliburton, with a suit described by White House spokesman Ari Fleischer as “without merit, and that's where it stands."

In its own ghastly way, this just gets better and better. No disrespect to Chandra Levy, but its been so long since we have had a full feeding frenzy, that I wonder if we still know how. I bet we do.

UPDATE: The Bear is also interested. But in his cool comments section, a reader tells us to chill.
