These "loyal Bushies" make it so easy, what with their obvious lies and contradictions and all. Alberto Gonzales says he had nothing to do with the the decision to fire the USAs. But once the email's come out suggesting otherwise, the story suddenly shifts. Nothing amazes me at this point. Jon Stewart takes him to the woodshed.
"Wow. I guess Alberto Gonzales is the Attorney General kind of like the homeless guy is Mayor of the park. He's not actually involved in the day-to-day operations, just kind of like a general observer."
In other purge-related news, the House -- following the Senate's lead -- yesterday voted to ditch the Patriot Act provision that allows the President to bypass Senate confirmation of interim US attorneys. Welcome back, checks and balances. It's nice to see you again.
