A bad day for the administration and it's few Stepford-like adherents, but a good day for the citizens of the United States of America... and believe me when I say that those two entities aren't the same.
Alberto Gonzalez, President Bush's poster boy for truth, justice, and the American way, has resigned.
Well... at least they say "resigned", but you now what? This is Washington, DC that we are talking about here... and how it is reported isn't always the way it is. I'll ask you to trust me on this, friends, I could tell you shit that would keep you from sleeping. "Gonzo" (as the President calls him) resigned, alright. Resigned because he was told that it was time to go. Not even this whack-job President could keep this guy.
Anyway, The Attorney General has "resigned".
I know that some of the purple kool-aid crowd will try to defend him, but really, don't bother. Defending a liar just because you'd rather believe the lies because the truth is uncomfortable, is the height of foolishness.
During his tenure in this administration, Mr Gonzalez was directly involved in the most egregious abuses of the U.S. Constitution in modern history (see the Patriot Act). Additionally, he was responsible for drafting the Presidential finding that said that torturing prisoners of war is OK, as long as you call them "detainees instead of "prisoner of war". Hello? "Geneva Convention on the treatment of prisoners of war" anyone?
Mr Gonzalez was a tumor... no, a chancre on the body of American jurisprudence. He was no respecter of the law that simple members of the thin blue line or the Bar were required to follow.
Alberto Gonzalez was the blacksmith who shod the philosophical horse upon which the Bush administration has trampled our Constitution into the mud.
You are a liar sir.
You are beneath contempt, and I can speak for quite a few rank and file law enforcement officers and members of the bar that think that you are scum, too.
You cannot be trusted. You have no integrity. You are not worthy of being a traffic officer, let alone the Chief Law Enforcement officer in the land.
Anyway... if you have been reading my blog for more than just a few weeks, you probably know what I am not a big fan of this administration or it's crimes against the American people, out Constitution, and humanity. I said that this post was about revisionist history, so let's do that, shall we?
Let's talk for a minute about President Bush's reaction to all of this.
President Bush said that this was a sad day, because AG Gonzalez' "Good name was dragged through the mud for political reasons"
Er... Come again, Mr President? Did you say "Good Name"?
BWAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAH! (sorry, I've been drinking).
Alberto Gonzalez is a liar, and a cheat. An incompetent bungler who never saw a Constitutional protection for the American people that he couldn't or wouldn't dissemble his way around. The only thing he was ever good at was blowing sunshine up the President's backside.
Good riddance, Alberto.
Don't let the doorknob hit you in the ass!
Gunfighter, who actually believes that what a lawman says should be taken for truth, because the people have a RIGHT to expect truth to come from the people that they have entrusted and empowered to serve and protect them.
