No, regular readers know that Dredd Blog is a "I don't care what political party any public servant thinks they belong to, nor how cool any member of any party thinks any politician, president, congress member, or judge is".
The concern on this blog is whether or not they have violated the principles of America as expressed in the Constitution and laws subservient to that Constitution.
If they have Dredd Blog condemns them to the extent they have violated the public trust.
No party or department of government is sacrosanct here on this blog, rather, they all get it when they deserve it (the "it" is condemnation or praise, which depends on their behavior in office).
And no, we are not talking about adult consensual sexual behavior in their bedrooms.
We are talking about the common good, the public good, as intended by our Constitution and laws all these years (The Common Good).
Some examples of prior Dredd Blog posts in this regard, as they relate to today's post, are as follows:
