Come on, governors: Grow a backbone and get some knee braces.

Democrats spend eight years rightly criticizing the Bush administration's politicization of the Justice Department, then get weak-kneed when said department files suit against Arizona's Papers Please law during a tough election year. A Justice Department as far removed from the politics of the day is vital to the integrity of our legal system. If the Attorney General and the DOJ lawyers decide to file a lawsuit, they shouldn't have to get a thumbs up from the White House political advisor or gain permission from elected officials. In this administration, they don't have to, something for which we should be grateful.
