Didn't anyone read the declaration of Independence?

Two events, the refusal of Karl Rove to testify per a Congressional subpoena, and the Bush Administration's promulgation of Congress' law (one which, I might add, Sen. Obama chose to vote for-undoubtedly for the "scary terrorists around every corner" vote) protecting telecoms that helped the government spy on American citizens, demonstrate for the millionth time that we are not a nation of equality before the law. Once more we lose credibility-abroad and at home-by doing what is ethically wrong but politically expedient.

Shame on Congress, the President, and Karl Rove (whose cocky "I'm special" attitude is disgusting). What is the point of having a justice system, if we just flush it down the toilet when it's not convenient to government ends?
