Miranda Gets the Riot Act Read to Him

Nah--he didn't--no such luck. Manuel DID however, find himself in what I believe is known as an untenable position as aide to Senate Majority Leader Bill "bell the cat" Frist. Bad Attitudes has been looking at this, and what they have to say is worth reading. You can do so here, and here.

Atrios links over to Jeff at pornlitics with more information on who actually retrieved the documents.

Summary: Republican Senate staffers pored over a number of documents Democratic staffers inadvertantly left unsecured on a common server. The bottom line is that there is definitely a question of legality here, and certainly an utter lack of ethics on the part of the Republicans. Not that the latter is actually news, but just as there's a difference between potential and kinetic energy...well, you get the picture.
