Requiem for A Hapless Yes Man ~ Gonzales Resigns!


To accompany the news of 'Berto's resignation & the loss of yet another important loyal consigliere in the carefully constructed & now imploding edifice that is Bushco, Bush carps bitterly that his too-loyal friend is a victim of extreme partisan politix, a meme which instantly started bouncing off the walls in the GOP Congressional echo chamber in an initial CNN report today (later revised to leave out the echoes, but we already know that will be the disingenuous rallying cry from here).

~ Interesting, in't it, when the very people complaining of "extreme partisan politix" biting them in they asses & "wrecking the country" were the same ones who invented them? Watch out for that backlash stuff, guys, it IS nasty.


"WASHINGTON (CNN)-- 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.'

"After months of standing by his top prosecutor and 'close friend,' Bush spoke briefly in Texas to praise Gonzales, saying the attorney general endured 'unfair treatment that has created harmful distraction at the Justice Department.'

"Bush said it's 'sad that we live in a time when a talented and honorable person' is impeded "from doing important work."

Following other DOJ appointees the infamous Bradley Shlozman & his successor at the Civil Rights Division Wan Kim out the door, your Demon wishes to reassure 'Berto that he has made an everlasting place for himself in history, & remind him not to forget to update his resume to include his contributions to the "torture is not torture until organ failure or death" memo; his brave display of loyalty for the good of the country by playing the ghoul & boogeyman at John Ashcroft's bedside in an attempt to get the then-AG's approval of a warrantless wiretapping program about which saner sticks-in-the-mud lawyers had doubts; and above all, for being willing to play the alternating roles of forgetful, stupid & foolish when called on the Congressional carpet to explain apparent purges of US Attorneys on partisan grounds, as well as other highly questionable partisan behavior.

All rather than expose the man who brought him along from Texas.

So, liberal bloggers like Demon realize they won't have Gonzo to kick around anymore, & wish to remind him to let the door hit you on the way out. She also presumes that the visits by the DOJ to her blog will stop. (And the mysterious dropping of root kits on her computer?)
