An Endorsement (of sorts) for James Comey

On Wednesday, Bill had this post praising the nomination of James Comey to head the FBI.  Now we have another strong indication that this is indeed a good pick.  Jerry Markon and Sari Horwitz report in the WaPo:

One day after President Obama's plan to nominate the former senior Justice Department official to run the FBI became public, the American Civil Liberties Union became the second civil liberties group to raise questions about Comey's involvement in the Bush administration's post-Sept. 11 anti-terrorism tactics, such as warrantless surveillance and tough interrogations.
The ACLU is one of the most reliable contrarian indicators around.  If these visitors from Bizarro World oppose something, it is nearly always good, and vice versa.
