Just Don't Leave the Country, Al

I hope the special prosecutor won't forget about Alberto "We Have a Right and Duty to Torture" Gonzales in the wake of his first good decision in years, the decision to jump ship and resign.

He also had district attorneys with whom his administration had a political beef with, fired. He also screwed up terrorist investigations and pretty much undermined most Americans faith in the justice system in this country.

Good riddance, just stay where we can see you, Al. I'm sure there are going to be more questions about your lack of ethics and general sliminess.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., reacted to the announcement by saying the Justice Department under Gonzales had "suffered a severe crisis of leadership that allowed our justice system to be corrupted by political influence."
Yep, that does a nice job of summing it up.

But really, I lost any respect for Alberto Gonzales when he came out strongly in defense of the US torturing terror suspects. Good guys don't stoop to the methods used by the bad guys and that's exactly what he was advocating. Dragging the US of A into slime and doing a terrible disservice to the country and our soldier's serving in his boss's ridiculous and never-ending pet war.

Good riddance. That makes four after Rove, who's going to be the next slimy little rat to jump ship?
