Senate Meanies To Hate On Poor Gonzales

Senate leaders are pushing for a vote of no confidence in Attorney General Gonzales today, for no other reason than his politicization of every aspect of the Department has undermined our system of justice.

[UPDATE: Surprise, surprise... Senate Republicans have blocked the vote.]

U.S. Attorneys fired for dubious reasons? Pushing for politicized voter fraud cases in key swing states? No, they have insisted, they're not responsible for any of this. In fact, no one was responsible for any of it! Tom Tomorrow's new cartoon summed it up perfectly-

The Family Circus 'Not Me!' ghost was apparently running the Justice Department for the past few years.

The President, of course, made it clear in advance that he didn't give a shit either way. "[I]t's an interesting comment about Congress, isn't it?," said Bushie. "And they can try to have their votes of no confidence, but it's not going to determine -- make the determination who serves in my government."

Three words hapless Senate leaders might keep in mind for Gonzo... im-peach-ment.
