Attorney General Gonzales is dead meat. His exit is only a question of time. (I been wrong before, but….)
I think the Senate Dems will not confirm some obvious hatchet man as the replacement for Gonzales. Bush has “benefitted” from two Attorney Generals who were profoundly dishonest and demagogic. No matter what the Bush administration did, they could be counted on to rubberstamp it as legal – or “close enough for government work” legal.
If the next Attorney General is halfway honest and opens the files of what has been done since 2001, even damn moderates will be shocked. There are bombshells waiting to detonate on the torture scandal, on Iraq, and on other dishonest and illegal gross abuses.
This year could be more entertaining politically than I expected.
I look forward to the moment during a press conference when, asked about the surge of Democratic subpoenas, Bush puffs out his chest, stares into the camera, and announces:
BRING ‘EM ON!
