It's Saturday morning, and I am suddenly filled with a longing for Bugs Bunny cartoons. And, apparently, so is oztech.

Jamie Gorelick is the author of the architect of the 1995 policy that established a wall between intelligence and law enforcement, which the 9/11 Commission blamed for the attacks. In fact, Jamie Gorelick was on the commission, and accused Condoleezza Rice of malfeasance for not providing intelligence information to law enforcement. In essence, she said following the 1995 memo she wrote is a crime.

And she should know. She is the presumptive Attorney General candidate.

And she is also an expert on the credit crunch. She was the vice chair of Fannie Mae from 1998 to 2003, and recieved a $700,000 bonus her first year. In March of 2002, she told Business week, "Fannie Mae is among the handful of top-quality institutions." The next year government regulators were investigating Fannie Mae $9 billion in unrecorded losses. About the same time, she got a very good deal on a $900,000 mortgage from Countrywide. Remember them? They're out of business. Currently, a Los Angeles federal grand jury is investigating similar loans made by Countrywide. Wanna bet that once she is installed as attorney general that investigation will stop?
