Agreeing with the Washington Times

After reviewing all the reasons to oppose the nomination of Attorney General Gonzales, Nat Hentoff writes Why is this man attorney general? - The Washington Times: Editorials/OP-ED - February 07, 2005:

Of the Republican senators on the committee who voted for Judge Gonzales, the most disappointing for me was Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas, a persistent champion of human rights around the world, very much including Sudan where he has traveled. But Mr. Brownback ignored Judge Gonzales' involvement in the torture memoranda and in the legal black hole of “ghost prisoners.” Mr. Brownback, is party loyalty that important?

I didn't think the Washington Times would agree with me until there were horsemen named Death and Famine roaming the landscape.
