Ashcroft disappears during election season
Funny who you don't see during the heat of election season. Attorney General John Ashcroft, for example, seems to be on an extended vacation. Justice Department policy is to stay clear of overtly political events, but even Ashcroft's name seems to be banned lately by Republican politicians.

According to Kathleen Hall Jamierson of Annenenberg Pubic Policy Center, "Ashcroft isn't popular. Ashcroft scares moderate Republican women. Bush makes them feel secure, and Republicans don't want to remind them of the argument that he's made them feel secure at the cost of civil liberties."


I wonder what that guy does for fun.
