Attorney General Gonzales is dead meat.Â His exit is only a question of time.Â (I been wrong before, butâ€¦.)
I think the Senate Dems will not confirm some obvious hatchet manÂ as the replacement for Gonzales.Â Â Bush has â€œbenefittedâ€ from two Attorney Generals who were profoundly dishonest and demagogic.Â No matter what the Bush administration did, they could be counted on to rubberstamp it as legal – or â€œclose enough for government workâ€ legal.
If the next Attorney General is halfway honest and opens the files of what has been done since 2001,Â even damn moderates will be shocked.Â Â Â 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.
