Excellent news from across the pond - Bush's personal smokescreen, Alberto Gonzales, a man for whom the list of offences to be taken into consideration extends into treble figures, has resigned. It seems that the old rule about the cover up being more damaging than the crime still holds true. You'd think an Administration that started on its life of crime at the knee of Tricky Dicky would know that, but apparently not. Trebles all round! Personally, I think this is more significant than Rove, as Gonzales was effectively
stuffed by the Senate justice committee and Patrick Leahy in particular. Some of the footage of Alberto's performance under examination is quite laughably crass. The vultures are circling in force.
