John Ashcroft gone; a better or worse future?

One of the top reasons I wanted Sen. Kerry in office over a return of Pres. Bush is because the latter appointed John Ashcroft as Attorney General. Now he’s gone, and no tears over his gall badder either. It seems to me to be a perfect illness for such a man as he.

But Demosthenian friend Hope wonders if his successor will be as bad or worse?

Perhaps, but those who love freedom (and know its costs; as opposed to those who want order, and know the price) have at least one thing working for us: We’re ready this time. No honeymoon; no deference; no grace period.

So, let’s start with something pretty obvious, and traditionally vital for Christians. Of course, I mean the state of prisoners at Guantanamo.
