Not so much a rant as a snark. And yes, I know I haven’t even written Thursday’s 365 post yet. Sue me.
From the New York Times, “Suspension of Jurist Unleashes Furor Against Musharraf,” 3/15/07:
A political and legal maelstrom has erupted after Pakistan’s president, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, unceremoniously suspended the country’s chief justice last week, in a step that lawyers and rights activists have called an assault on the independence of the judiciary.
Damn savages. Thank [insert appropriate deity here] that that kind of shenanigans wouldn’t ever happen here.
