Attorney General Resigns

When I saw the headline on MSNBC.com regarding the resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, next to his picture was the statement in large print, “I want to apologize.”

Apologize? No, it can’t be! Then I looked more carefully and saw that the apology was attributed to quarterback Michael Vick over the dog fighting conviction.

The attorney hanky panky started to unfold in January. By the ides of March, while I duked it out with snakes and rats, people were calling for Gonzales to resign.

I won’t say much, except to note good riddance to a pathetic disgrace to his race, his country, and his office, the spineless puppet of a puppet of malignant filth.

On another note, the lovely Lolita "Professor?" request for direction count is up to seven. If they are attracted, they are suppressing the expression of their desire.

You go professor.

I admit to surprise at Gonzales stepping down. I thought he would stay as long as possible to help provide cover for whatever investigations are underway.

The confirmation hearings for any successor should be interesting.

Good riddance to Gonzo indeed. But if the rumors of replacements and replacements for those replacements are true, I suspect that far more nefarious things are at hand..... (A bush crony as head of Dept of Homeland Security reeks of plans for elevated alerts at critical times during the '08 campaign season)

As far as your direction giving, you should offer to actually guide these coeds to their destination. You may then find out if there is interest or not.

Ole Bushie keeps blathering on about the "Washington politicians" but he is Enemy Number One when it comes to that. Why the heck was Gonzo appointed? Condee Rice?? For POLITICAL purposes, doh.
Chertoff scares me. Too bad the Veep doesn't take an early out. Mr. Evil.

I was a bit surprised by Gonzo's resignation as well. I don't think there is anything more nefarious in his quitting than he is just trying to get out of the line of fire.Frankly, I'd like to see the spotlight pointed elswhere anyway. That the firings were likely political in nature is not surprising in the least, as everything this administration does is political, and they have said as much.

I can think of worse things than having the look of knowledge and authority about oneself. I'd be lying if I said I didn't wish I had it myself.

Yes, Bush's accomplices are dropping like flies, but sadly, the damage is done. From today's broadcast of Democracy Now:

"New figures highlight a worsening humanitarian crisis in Iraq. The Associated Press reports the death toll for Iraqi civilians is double what it was a year ago. Estimates show Iraq is suffering an average sixty-two deaths per day, up from thirty-three last year. Meanwhile the Iraqi Red Crescent reports the number of internally displaced Iraqis has also doubled over the course of the so-called U.S. troop surge. More than 1.1 million Iraqis are now internally-displaced, up from under four-hundred fifty thousand earlier this year."

These are the people who have paid the highest price while the people of the US surrendered their government to crazed, right wing idealogues capable of incomprehensible brutality and violence.

Furthermore, there will be no accountability. Wolfowitz got a golden parachute out of the World Bank. Bolton's ugly Hitleresque face is all over Fox News promoting the next war with Iran. They will all get book deals as well as countless, lucrative invitations to speak to right wing audiences.

In the meantime, it's 125 degrees (Farenheit) in Baghdad and they get a maximum of three hours of electricity per day and there is a severe water shortage as well.

Good points, Liza. I will have a post on Iraq in the next day or so. It's getting worse on just about every front and by every measure. At the current rate, US casualties for 2007 will FAR EXCEED those of any other year. Iraqi casualties are also climbing. We are losing, and yes, the humanitarian crisis is beyond unconscionable.

Later, I might post something about Bush's remarks on Gonzo, blaming the Democrats for his demise.

Unbelievable.

Bush has now lost every important member of the team he has relied on since being governor of Texas.

Time doesn't wound all heels, but it's nice to see it score a few points now and then.

On many, many fronts, a dark and bloody moon is rising. Can you even imagine the intensity of the discourse a year from now with the 2008 election ten or so weeks away?

At the end of August 2008, I'm sure things will be just dandy in the middle east and Afghanistan.
