Attorney General (for now) Alberto Gonzales continues to stonewall and smirk his way through hearings with the Senate Judiciary Committee today. If he weren't part of President Bush's plutocracy, he wouldn't look and act so smug. Everyone (especially Arlen Specter and Charles Schumer) knows this guy's a slimy liar. Look at that smart-ass grin. Don't you want to smack it right off of him?
The good news is that the wolves are circling the Bush camp. He and his nitroglycerin-popping buddy Dick Cheney have managed to skate away scot-free on nearly every count, but dumb luck can't hold forever. Not even when you're as dumb as Bush.
Let's keep putting the pressure on our elected officials to start actually representing us (instead of sucking up and compromising, Nancy Pelosi) and hold them accountable. They will have an opportunity very soon to cite the White House for contempt, and they'd better do it.
