Meet the New Justice Department

Bush was cherry-picking legal advice all the time, right? Remember that infamous torture memo penned by John Yoo? Even though there's no evidence that he was pressured to present a particular viewpoint, the man is vilified (and now threatened with war crimes charges) for writing what he thought was an honest legal opinion.

But if it were true, that the Bush Administration, sought a legal justification that came out the way they wanted it to, that would be really bad, right?

What if the Obama Administration gets caught doing exactly that? The Attorney General hears a legal opinion he doesn't like, so he just asks someone else? That's definitely not the way things are supposed to work.

Where's the outrage?
