WaPo gives Beltway Dems cover to vote No on Gonzales 

A fine editorial this Sunday morning:

According to the logic of attorney general nominee [Gonzales], federal authorities could deprive American citizens of sleep, isolate them in cold cells while bombarding them with unpleasant noises and interrogate them 20 hours a day while the prisoners were naked and hooded, all without violating the Constitution. Senators who vote to ratify Mr. Gonzales's nomination will bear the responsibility of ratifying such views as legitimate.
(via WaPo)

Let's see if the Beltway Dems have some inaugural balls of their own, eh?

NOTE WaPo doesn't even mention Gonzales's advocacy of executive—let's not use the word "President," OK? That's for Constitutional office holders—"rule by decree" (back). But we'll take what we can get.
