alberto gonzales attempts escape

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales stepped down today amid what Michigan Congressman John Conyers, the Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, calls, “a cloud of suspicion that the system of justice has been manipulated for political purposes.” Word on the street is that Bush crony Michael Chertoff, the man who so poorly handled the Hurricane Katrina situation as U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security two years ago, is likely to be named his successor. If you think about it, Bush doesn’t have a very deep bench to pick from. The crony team, it seems, is thinning out. And he desperately needs one of his people at the Department of Justice in order to keep legitimate investigations from taking place. If Chertoff doesn’t work out, my guess is that we’ll see Harriet Miers in a moustache, speaking like Borat.

    Haven’t you liberal bloodsuckers done enough to this poor, beautiful, ethnic man? Alberto Gonzales is every inch a patriot. Torture in defense of liberty is not a crime!

    Don’t you need some sort of legal experience to be the attorney general? I thought Chertoff’s sole experience had been some horse club…

    Actually, Oliva, Chertoff had been chosen by Bush to protect the back half of all the ponies in the Administration.

    Wasn’t Chertoff actually Grand Moff Tarkin?
