The scary part is, as head of the Justice Department, Gonzales is ostensibly the country's top lawyer. After this performance, I doubt if he'll be the top lawyer on the Greyhound back to Texas. Hey, he's the guy who said "the moment I believe I can no longer be effective, I will resign as Attorney General." Right about now, even his staunchest supporters are ordering mylar balloons delivered to the D of J with "don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out" stenciled on them.
At the hearing, Senators accused Bush's torture champion of being dishonest, deceitful, incompetent, evasive, inept, underhanded, misleading, smelling like rancid olive loaf, and looking like he's wearing his father's burial suit. Not to mention scaring small children with a high squeaky voice that, when broadcast over airwaves, has been known to activate smoke alarms, lawn sprinklers and TIVO recordings of Gladiator movies. And those were the Republicans. With friends like these, who needs Democrats?
Without Democrats, of course, none of this - none of any of the administration's crimes - would have ever seen the light of day.
