Permit me to echo Stacy McCain: How Much Do I Love Bill Barr?
Let me put it this way: Although I strongly disapprove of homosexuality, our Attorney General makes me feel like a Log Cabin Republican, because gosh, I just love this guy that much. If loving Bill Barr is wrong, I don’t want to be right. The reason for my deep man-crush, of course, is the interview The Love-God of Justice™ did with Jan Crawford of CBS News. How good is it? Obscenely good. Pornographically good. So good, you’ll feel guilty for how much you enjoy it. Ace of Spades provides an annotated transcript, which should be narrated by Barry White with the Love Unlimited Orchestra doing the background music.I read Ace's extended summary last night, and the first thing I did this morning was to listen to the whole thing. You should too; the guy is awesome. I'll say this for Trump, if an underling isn't working out he isn't afraid to fire him and get a new one. Barr is the AG we need now, and we should damned happy to have him. I agree with Elizabeth Vaughn at Red State, The Fabulous William Barr, The Right Man At The Right Moment.
