“Cut and Run” Gonzales: The Quitter
I usually try not to post on the same subject everyone else is posting about, but this is just too good. It resigned! The Bitch is dead! Electrodes Torquemada Abu Gonzales is no longer Attorney General of the United States. Yiiiipppeeeee!!! Yaaayy!!!
Yes it’s true that Gonzales is only a symptom of the simpleminded powercrazed would-be dictator who appointed him. And God only knows who George Johnny Walker Bush will choose to replace him.
In late 2004, America heaved a massive sigh of relief when John Ashcroft resigned. The worst attorney general in American history was stepping down. We were finally rid of the imbecile who thought the Salem Witch Trials didn’t go far enough. Whoever replaces him can't possibly be as bad, right???
Well, here we are again. We've finally gotten rid of the worst attorney general in our history; he makes Ashcroft look like a liberal. After nearly seven years, we've learned that whenever you think the Bourbon King couldn’t possibly sink any lower, he does. Much much lower.
Who will replace Torquemada? (Rumors are swirling.) Will it be somebody so Godawful that we’ll be yearning for those good old days when that nice compassionate Alberto Gonzales was in charge?
Fortunately we have a Democratic Senate now, whatever that’s worth. If only we could arrange to have fifty spine transplants before the next confirmation hearing. And on that note:
This is your chance to tell the Senate NOT to approve another Bush clone for the attorney general’s office. We need an attorney general who respects the Constitution and the Geneva Convention.
Our Democratic Congress hasn’t done much. The very least they can do is make sure that no future Torquemadas are allowed into the Justice Department.
