Gonzales is Resigning!

It is all over the news this morning, with an official announcement due later today. Let's hope the next one is better suited for the job. Jim

A useless fascist fucking bastard emblematic of the entire Bush Administration. A cock sucking synchopant who served his Furheur and The Party, never the nation. Rumsfled, Wolfiewent and now Gone-zalez. Good riddance to the lot of them, fascist bastards. May they all find their rewards in a prison cell for the murder and injustice they have caused.

There may have been a marathon session of rochambeaux between he and 43, to decide whether he quits or gets fired...

...but it was probably done as late as possible to avoid having to face Congress again.

In what has to be the best part of the story, sources in the White House leaked the information that he told Bush on Friday.

In his statement, he said that he told Bush yesterday [Sunday].

Someone has got to get this guy some GALANTAMINE, or at least some Garlique to increase blood flow to his brain.

By tomorrow he will be saying he can't recalling writing any such letter, or his reasons for taking such an action

Happy trails Mr. Gonz.

I hope he'll stay as far away from CA as possible.

I'm beginning to think you don't like the guy.

Gonzalez lost my faith way back when he decided to try and answer the question about why the prosecutors were replaced instead of just stating they serve at the pleasure . . . showed me he didn't need to be performing on that stage.

President Bush on Monday said he reluctantly accepted the resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, whose "good name was dragged through the mud for political reasons."

Apparently Bush didn't see the quality performance his guy gave during Senate hearings over the past year.

Or maybe Bush just really really liked the "Damned the Constitution, Full Speed Ahead" approach of his top law enforcer.
