Please Resign Now, Nick, Before You Do Yourself Any More Damage

I know you got flustered (not something a political leader should allow to happen) but that outburst of yours was ugly. Your totalitarian instincts were showing. So you believe the only people who should be allowed to investigate the Rennard cock-up is some bunch of insiders you've appointed yourself? Ever hear of a Free Press?

On a lighter note let me run some names past you- Sherlock Holmes, Lord Peter Wimsey, Miss Marple, the Famous Five- Any of these ring any bells? Or again,  how about Bernstein and Woodward? In our shared culture (at least I thought we shared it- you're a liberal, aren't you?)- the "self-appointed detectives" are the good guys.
