Gonzalez Resigned!


SAY word.

WASHINGTON – Alberto Gonzales, the nation’s first Hispanic attorney general, announced his resignation Monday, driven from office after a wrenching standoff with congressional critics over his honesty and competence.

Republicans and Democrats alike had demanded his departure over the botched handling of FBI terror investigations and the firings of U.S. attorneys, but President Bush had defiantly stood by his Texas friend for months until accepting his resignation last Friday.

“After months of unfair treatment that has created a harmful distraction at the Justice Department, Judge Gonzales decided to submit his resignation and I have accepted his decision,” Bush said from Texas, where he is vacationing.

Solicitor General Paul Clement will be acting attorney general until a replacement is found and confirmed by the Senate, Bush said.

Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff was among those mentioned as possible successors, though a senior administration official said the matter had not been raised with Chertoff. Bush leaves Washington next Monday for Australia, and Gonzales’ replacement might not be named by then, the official said.

The Democrats CAN actually be effective. But now, it was some Repubs that was like
“this lil mexican negro GOT TA GO”.

    Yeah I would write what i really feel about Bush’s anniversary reinactment of his initial actions …but…I don’t want no more people after me

    “The commander-in-chief just flew by
    Did he stop? No, he had a couple seats
    Just proved jet blue he’s not
    Jet flew by the spot
    What if he ran out of jet fuel and just dropped
    That woulda been something to watch
    Helicopters doing fly-bys to take a couple of shots
    Couple of portraits then ignored ’em
    He’d be just another bush surrounded by a couple orchids”

    I didn’t think it was possible to find an AG worse than Ashcroft, but they managed to do so with Gonzales. I’m having trouble getting excited about the possibility of Chertoff taking his place.

    And the buzz on the internet (that I’m reading anyway) seems to suggest that this is timed more to coincide with the hiatus of the Daily Show than with the anniversary of Katrina (Libby’s pardon and Ashcroft’s resignation also were announced during similar hiatuses believe it or not).
