To Patrick Leahy, on the Independent Counsel system

First you say it's "bad," and then it's "fine"
Your mind is mangled up, like tangled twine.
Your words sure trip you up, like kousa vine
You really should grow a spine.

Leahy is the quintessential hypocrite. In 1998, Leahy questioned the usefulness of the Independent Counsel system. During the recent hearings, Leahy criticized Samuel Alito for having criticized the Independent Counsel statute in 2000.
