We Won’t Have Fredo To Kick Around Anymore

Alberto Gonzalez has resigned as Attorney General:

Embattled Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales has resigned from his post, according to an administration official, ending a controversial cabinet tenure that included clashes with Congress over the firing of nine U.S. attorneys and the nature of efforts to spy on U.S. citizens.

The official said Gonzales submitted a letter on Friday saying he had decided to step down, but the announcement was withheld until he met with President Bush at the president’s Crawford ranch. His resignation will be announced at a press conference scheduled at 10:30.

As I said back in April, with a nickname like Fredo, Gonzalez should’ve been concerned.

    Good riddance. Not that Chertoff will be a step up. Frankly, I think “incompetence”, “unquestioning”, and “willing to do his master’s bidding” are the only qualifications for any Bush appointee these days regardless of the office. Robert Gates appears to be the only one who slipped through the cracks, and I’ve noticed that Bush hasn’t been putting him in front of the press much these days.

    I like the Godfather II clips by the way. Very appropriate :)
