Can’t keep a good book down

While Naomi Wolf [1]‘s book The End of America [2] remains on The New York Times bestseller list [3] (#28), it’s also just landed on the LA Times’ bestseller list.

More importantly, Naomi has a new call to arms posted on her blog [4] at The Huffington Post, saying that Democratic leaders in Congress should be held in contempt for not challenging the Bush administration.

Here’s a taste:

“Like many of us, after having watched helplessly as the Bush administration trampled the Constitution and made a mockery of checks and balances over the course of five bitter years, I was hopeful when the American people elected a Democratic Congress in November of 2006. Finally, I imagined, we would have a whiff of legality and the hint of a restoration of the rule of law in the land.

(…)

And yet, where it counts most, Democratic leaders in Congress have completely abdicated their constitutional oversight role.”
