With apologies to Paul Simon and his Graceland album and then, just a warning not to eat while you read this entry because I bet you'll choke when you do:
U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales says he won't resign because - ::choke:: - he needs to stay in office for the kids. What kids? Yeah, exactly. Maybe the kids who will grow up to become Republican federal prosecutors he can fire purely for partisan punking? [Don't ask me; I'm not Machiavelli NOR a GOP pundit NOR a Bushie. ::shudder::]
Also from Think Progress (click the link to see Gonzales video):
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales announced this morning: “I’m not going to resign. I’m going to stay focused on protecting our kids.” Speaking before a Project Safe Childhood event, Gonzales told reporters he plans “to go up to the Congress and provide further clarification” about the U.S. Attorney purge, and claimed that his department has been “tremendous in the area of public corruption.”What an asshole. But then, if he were competent and honest, he would NOT be a Bushie OR have a job with the Bush Administration, would he?
Gonzales’ declaration that he intends to stay “focused on protecting our kids” comes as he launches a cross-country PR tour to save his job
