So What?

He left to spend more time with his chickens, but nothing has changed and no one is going to clean up the mess he made. If he hadn’t died, the Shrubbery would have appointed William Mitchell to fill out the end of Gonzo’s term, to complete the re-hiring of the Watergate hacks.

The real problem with the sentiment “my country right or wrong” is that it has been so damn long since the US has done anything right.

You’re taking the good image of “Gonzo” in vein with tying him to Fredo.

Yes…I’m a muppets purest. And, no…cookies aren’t just a “sometime thing” as they now have cookie monster singing.

Well calling him Fredo slanders the Mafia who have much higher standards than the Hedgemony.

Cookie Jill, at first I misread “Frodo” …

While I’m intrigued by the cause of the departure of Rove and Gonzales in quick succession, I am concerned about what happens next. Either we won’t have long to wait (if Bush attempts a recess appointment despite his alleged agreement with Reid), or else we may have a very long time to wait (if Bush attempts to leave Clement in office indefinitely). I’m reserving judgment.

Something incredibly stupid and willful will take place as the Shrubbery still doesn’t recognize any limits on his power.

This is why impeachment should be on the table, because you can’t bargain with a three-year-old.

No, impeachment should not be on the table. It should be in Speaker Pelosi’s hand. She should be wielding it like a club, threatening Bush and Cheney with what will happen if they continue their bad behavior. Three-year-old, MFA… Bush at least has behaved that way his entire “adult” life.

Send both of them home. If “home” happens to have bars, guards and razor wire, that’s OK with me too.

Well if we’re looking for former Watergate hacks to put into the AG position, then I absolutely must nominate John Dean.

7 whig { 08.28.07 at 4:17 am }

In seriousness, I’m not seeing the problem with letting Clement act as AG indefinitely now until the end of the term. If there’s stuff I should know about Clement that tells you he’s worse than I think, let me know, but it seems like an improvement over Gonzales and that’s unlikely of any prospective nominee.

I certainly don’t think the senate should rush to confirm someone crony and unqualified.

Fredo is Commander Cookoo Banana’s “nickname” for him. Guess it’s better than Karl’s sobriquet…”Turd Blossom”

Whig, Clement is another hack who thinks he works for the President and not the people which was the big problem Gonzales had. The Attorney General is supposed to represent the real government of the US, the people.

It’s not going to make any difference, the Department of Justice is so thoroughly corrupted with partisan political hacks that firing everyone and starting from scratch is the only way of bringing back justice to the country.

Jill, I don’t think it’s a nickname, but merely reflects the fact that the Shrubbery can’t consistently string three syllables together to say Alfredo.
