Banana Republic?

The new wingnut talking point is that, if we investigate and prosecute the past administration, we will turn in to a banana republic.

Actually, I think there is some small merit to that point, but then you have to draw the line somewhere. If Bush had shot someone in the head and evidence came to light now, we would prosecute him, right? So with that said, I think it is worth it to get to the bottom of the torturing thing.

Of course, all these same wingnuts in the first few months of the Bush administration were arguing, no...DEMANDING, investigations and prosecutions for imagined past offenses like pardoning the wrong people, but I guess 9/11 changed everything, right? Is that the rationalization they'll use now?
