Adios Senor

Also, welcome home where you belong, Alberto. I agree with Scott that when it comes down to it, Gonzales’ troubles mainly center around his being Yet Another Texan, in addition to being a Republican and being appointed by Bush the Younger. His firing those US attorneys was just business as usual for both parties. When the Dems have the White House they remove their share whenever they please. Making it out like Gonzales did something unusual was the unusual part here. But being a Texan didn’t help him a bit. It never does for long beyond the state lines.

Hillarity rides again

Sen. Clinton wants U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to resign for firing six U.S. Attorneys, because the AG’s reasons were political. Big whoop. U.S. Attorneys are political appointments and serve at the pleasure of their masters. As Sen. Hillarity knows very well. No wonder no-experience Obama looks so good next to her.

UPDATE  The Fat Guy, a sometime confidant of US Attys, has a good comment on this sham scandal.
