8. You haven't been keeping up. Yes, the replacement of USAs has happened before
when a new administration takes over. It did with Ronnie, George I, and GWB, as well as Clinton.

You should be reading this instead of that other link posted in answer here:

Bush I Assistant AG, Stuart Gerson, in today's WaPo online chat ...

"It is customary for a President to replace U.S. Attorneys at the beginning of a term. Ronald Reagan replaced every sitting U.S. Attorney when he appointed his first Attorney General. President Clinton, acting through me as Acting AG, did the same thing, even with few permanent candidates in mind."

Karl Rove,
"Look, by law and by Constitution (sic), these attorneys serve at the pleasure of the president and traditionally are given a four year term. And Clinton, when he came in, replaced all 93 U.S. attorneys. When we came in, we ultimately replace most all 93 U.S. attorneys there are some still left from the Clinton era in place. We have appointed a total of I think128 U.S. attorneys -- that is to say the original 93, plus replaced some, some have served 4 years, some served less, most have served more. Clinton did 123. I mean, this is normal and ordinary.
