John Dean: Bush worse that Nixon

Now that was a hard headline to write. I'm so accustomed to hearing how President Bush is worse than Hitler....

I'm surprised John Dean wasn't asked about a Hitler comparison.

John Dean (must be something about that last name that gives people BDS Syndrome) testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today, arguing in favor of some sort of reprimand against President Bush over the alleged domestic spying abuses.

Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) wants the Senate to censure Bush, something John Dean, a convicted Watergate conspirator, feels could be an over-reach.

From AP:

Nixon White House counselor John Dean, testifying on behalf of a Democratic resolution to censure President Bush, asserted Friday that Bush's conduct in connection with domestic spying exceeds the wrongdoing that toppled his former boss from power.

I feel compelled to mention this seemingly unrelated side note: Martin Sheen played John Dean in the made-for-TV movie Blind Ambition.
