Monica Goodling’s guide to interviewing job applicants.
Happy Valley News Hour had a great piece yesterday on Monica Goodling’s list of interview questions that she used (illegally) during the Alberto Gonzalez days to make sure all their hired hands were also Bush-licking toadies.
According to the DOJ’s own internal report released last week, Monica used an, um, innovative set of questions when interviewing applicants, including: “What is it about George W. Bush that makes you want to serve him?”, “Aside from the President, give us an example of someone currently or recently in public office who you admire?”, and, simply, “Why are you a Republican?” Monica, you see, wasn’t just looking for Republicans, she was looking for that rare candidate who was, according to her own testimony, “Republican enough.”
What insanity drove the Republican presidency to give over its Justice Department to a bunch of line-toeing fundies and right-wing zealots? This is the same woman who used to cover up the boobs on the statues of liberty in the Justice Department.
It reminds me very much of a song by the Minutemen:
