Al Gonzales: Get the Hook.

How much longer is this farce going to continue?

Last week when appearing before the Senate, Al Gonzales became the latest in a long string of sufferers of ARFS (Acquired Republican Forgetful Syndrome). One representative excerpt: "Senator, I have searched my memory. I have no recollection of the meeting."

I'm surprised he could even remember his name.

His performance was so embarrassingly bad that he's even lost the support of Senate Republicans, who really wanted to be able to say, "He's not so bad."

But gosh-darn it, he was.

Like a house-guest who's clearly overstayed his welcome, Al Gonzales doesn't have the grace or sense to know it's time to leave. And GWB, Decider in Chief, doesn't have the brains or cojones tell him.

Newsweek reports an unnamed White House adviser says the President is afraid this will "embolden the Dems to go after other targets—like Karl Rove."

I got news for him...the Democrats will require no emboldening.

Some presidents, once they've become Lame Ducks, grow into statesmen by championing causes that formerly would have cost them political capital. Bush reverts to his petulant Frat Boy persona and flips off congress.
