Another one bites the dust…
Alberto Gonzalez announced his resignation (effective September 17th) this morning. So far, Jeff Fecke (a contributor at Shakesville) has written my favorite post on the subject:
No, if Alberto Gonzales exists, and we’re not 100 percent sure if he does, but assuming that he might, his legacy could possibly be that memory is a slippery and imperfect thing, especially when the memories in question involve serious issues of executive branch interference in the Department of Justice. That’s if If Gonzales exists, and I didn’t say that he did.
I can see you’re getting confused, so let me try to clarify things with an example. Let’s say you have a watermelon, and it’s got it has seeds in it. Suddenly, a truck backs up, and the chicken gets loose.
I’m sorry, I can’t write any more of that metaphor due to executive privilege.
Good stuff; go read, and enjoy!
