Another Ceremonial Step-Down

Well, the country finally got its way, albeit after Christmas, so to speak.

In Gonzales' resignation speech, the son of migrants said that even his worst days as Attorney General were "better than his fathers' best days."

Easier, yes, without a doubt. But better?

No, Alberto. Because as a migrant worker, your father spent those days doing honest hard work. You, on the other hand have spent most of your days lately undermining the Constitution, that "quaint" document as you called it, that guarantees the rights of our citizens to live without being intimidated by their own government. You know, the only thing that separates our society from the rest of the world? The thing that makes us a "free country" and therefore, "the best place in the world to live", according to so many? And the reason that your father brought you and your family here for a better life in the first place?

Why don't you ask HIM how he thinks your days went?

As for Bush, he was "reluctant" to accept Gonzales' resignation. Understandably, he wasn't eager to do so--it's getting harder and harder to find good stooges to take pratfalls for him and Cheney these days.

Great Post I agree with every word.
Congressman Larry Craig was caught with another guys dick in his mouth at a Minneapolis airport. Craig said the cops misconstrewed what they saw. He said he is not gay he just likes to suck cocks of strangers. Dumm...dummm....dummm...another one bites the dust...

What really struck me was George Bush's indignation over Gonzales being dragged through the mud by Congress. How dare they suggest the Attorney General was obviously lying to them when he was obviously lying to them! That's no reason to besmirch someone's good name. A good reason would be because someone wrote an op-ed piece for the New York Times contradicting what you said in your State of the Union address. Now, that's a good reason for mudslinging.

The Republicans have polished the phony indignation until they can see their warty faces in it. Just like Tony Snow's admonition to Congress to stop these silly hearings and get on with the business of running the country.

Sadly for him, and for the administration, this is PART of that business, and it's to their great detriment that people are finally figuring that out.

Didn't you love it when Tony condescendingly explained that since it was 130 Baghdad it was totally reasonable that Parliament take off during August while our soldiers were getting extra time tacked on to their deployment?

Big pharma has to have developed some amazing drug that keeps Republican brains from hurting when their mouths speak.

I think it's just novocaine. They just shoot it into a different hole for them.

I see a blog about Craig's list coming up. Another closeted Republican Queer? This trait may go all the way up to the top. We need to get to the bottom of it. Grab the Bull buy the horns so to speak. "I was misconstrued, I was misconstrued" said Larry as he ran out of the men's room holding up his pants and brushing the dust off his knees.
