God bless Patrick Leahy. He’s putting Solicitor General nominee Ted Olson to hard questioning about his past role as franchise player for the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. And it seems Olson has decided to be less than forthcoming about his role in managing the privately funded multimillion dollar investigation of the Clintons sponsored by Richard Mellon Scaife. Of course Olson is going to be confirmed as Solicitor General anyway, but it least it will be on record that he’s a lying lowlife guilty of the same sort of dishonesty that he and his ilk savaged Clinton for over the course of his Presidency.
