I'm Getting Sick of Using "Highly Unusual" When Talking About Bush

Nice, really nice, headline in the Washington Post:

Justice Staff Saw Texas Districting As Illegal: Voting Rights Finding On Map Pushed by DeLay Was Overruled

The money paragraph:

Mark Posner, a longtime Justice Department lawyer who now teaches law at American University, said it was "highly unusual" for political appointees to overrule a unanimous finding such as the one in the Texas case.

So, Delay's slimy (and now, apparently, illegal) redistricting in Texas that was only done to give the Republicans an even bigger majority than they already have was found to violate the Voting Rights Act by actual professionals in the Department of Justice. Political appointees overturned that finding, which people are now calling "highly unusual".

How many times have we used "highly unusual" for this administration? "Plan B" in the FDA. New Source Review for the Clean Air Act. Bypassing the UN and invading Iraq. Those are just off the top of my head.

When does this end?

I'm sick of this. I'm tired and have to run a marathon on Sunday. I'm going to bed.
