It's Friday & Gonzo is Still Attorney General?

Enough frivolity - it's time to get back to politics as usual and in the current administration that means one thing - back to lying their collective behinds off. So Alberto Gonzalez is still Attorney General of this country, is he? How much longer will this democracy endure an Attorney General who has lied so often to so many about so much?

“The attorney general took an oath to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth,” [Senator Charles] Schumer (D - NY) told reporters. “Instead, he tells the half-truth, the partial truth and everything but the truth. And he does it not once, and not twice, but over and over and over again. His instinct is not to tell the truth but to dissemble and deceive.” The Hill, July 26, 2007

Here's a link to a story that details two differing versions of the same story, one as told by Alberto Gonzalez, and the other tale recounted by FBI Director Robert S. Mueller. Who's telling the truth? Well, my money is on the guy who is not in bed with the president (I apologize for any sickening visual that turn of phrase may conjure). In other words, it's not Georgie Bush's old pal (el cuato)...

Here's a link to Eugene Robinson's Bedtime for Gonzo that appears in Friday morning's WaPo.
