Lawfare: who’s the enemy?

There are those who are still protesting President Nixon. Bush also gathers small and vehement active protest as well as serving as a foil for the current administration. Even candidates like Alaska governor Sarah Palin are still under attack (see Lefty Foes Attempt to Bankrupt Palin Family). The tactics are the modern ones of legal harassment. That is the tactic discussed as a major contributor to medical costs and business destruction.

In her term, ten ethics complaints and 150 FOIA requests have been filed. (One of the complaints, about improperly firing her state public-safety commissioner, predates her national prominence.)

While holding elected officials accountable is laudable, most of the matters are beyond trivial.

It is hard to tell just whether it is just plain bitterness or a strategic threat elimination process at work here. Either way, it exceeds the bounds of constructive civil behavior and harms us all. Seeking justice is one thing. Tearing apart enemies under the context of justice is another.
