With due respect to Dr. Knowitall, there’s a couple minor points he’s missing: this is the AG, the chief law enforcement office of the land we’re talking about, who appears more and more to have told a pack of lies and withheld information from Congress, not your average law making dude (Lionel Hutz reference). Second, he’s actually not a “political attorney,” per se - he’s the people’s attorney, sworn to upheld the US Constitution and behold’n to we the PEOPLE, not the lying decider-in-chief. And the truth is that there are thousands of competent, highly scrupulous attorneys out there working as prosecutors and representing the People… all who would never find themselves in the position Al does now. So please… YOU get a life, and stop making excuses for this incompetent flunkie who misunderstands that he really serves at the discretion of the PEOPLE, not Bush. The countdown to Gonzales announcing his “mutually agreed upon” resignation has begun, its only a matter of time. Maybe 5-10 days from today, at the most.

Libby was thrown to the wolves, Runsfeld, now Gonzales, the next to go down after Gonzales should be Rove.
The American should be calling for the Impeachment on the rest of the gang, the gang that cannot shoot straight.

All due respect to the hundreds of millions of fine, upstanding, honest attorneys in America, Gonzales is a freakin’ attorney, for cryin’ out loud, and a political one at that. What do we expect? Honesty, fairness and decency? This is America. Get a life!!

I’m just surprized Fishey didn’t show the two indicted officials from AIPAC perched on Gonzalez, one with a thumbscrew the other with listening device. Then again it would always be in the spirit of things to replace one of the AIPAC figures with John Hagee.

The fact that a personal political strategist to the president had direct influence over DOJ policy, personnel and how federal law enforcement is executed, is just staggering. Rove should be forced to take a formal cabinet position or some other defined role in the federal bureaucracy so we have transparency and accountability to his actions. Right now, he’s nothing more than the puppetmaster pulling the strings, the metaphor used in the Godfather.

Funny , but Rove as angel is pure conjucture.

Gonzales’ conscience ? He doesn’t have a tiny piece of that luxurious item at the first day of his life ! The guys on his shoulders are at the same of AG category !

That forlorn visage seems to be asking, “I did everything he asked of me; so, is he now going to throw me to the wolves?” Count on it, Al!
