Attorneys and Snakes

Well, remember back in January when I was complaining about White House hanky panky regarding US Attorneys?

Well, this has now become a full fledged fiasco and the number one story as of this instant on CNN. Kyle Sampson has now resigned, and pressure is mounting for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to resign. He has now admitted mistakes were made. Really? Where I work, until I am shot or decide to shoot myself, all staff are read the riot act that every email is cc'ing the AZ Star, the New York Times, and the National Enquirer, and staff that violate this policy are humiliated in ways that violate HR policies.

Not always, but in general, time wounds all heals, and the true colors of this White House are reaching critical mass in public awareness. I can just imagine what folks will think of W in ten years. Not realizing the danger of email, the snakes have seen their work exposed for the world to examine in all of its gory details. This administration is dirty. Perhaps alluding to these characters as snakes insults the serpent species.

Well, your humble blogger speaks from experience when noting that there's nothing quite like the sound of that rattle in the dark of night. Perhaps a certain irony is at work.

Gonzales has already said he won't resign. Given past precedent with this administration, we can await his receipt of a meritorious service medal form the President any day now.

What makes you think the admin _hasn't_ been good vis-a-vis email awareness, and all we have seen are the handful of missives that slip through the cracks?

Excellent point, as usual, and I agree. I can just imagine the stuff that isn't slipping through.
