(Partial) Credit Where (Partial) Credit Is Due

I've said a lot of mean things about John Ashcroft, but he appears to have done at least partly right thing here. So partial credit to him for refusing to sign off on Bush and Cheney's illegal wiretapping scheme.

(Ashcroft could have gotten full credit by standing up and saying (after he got out of the I.C.U., of course), "Hey, not only did these guys press me to sign off on something illegal, but they also did it while I had less-than-full capacity.")
