I heard on the radio this morning that Alberto Gonzales is resigning. The only upside of his waiting this long to do what was right is that a dozen or so of his corrupt underlings have been forced to resign in order to protect him, so his intransigence has contributed to wider house cleaning than might otherwise have taken place.
The confirmation hearings for Gonzales’ successor ought to be entertaining. I shudder to think of who President Bush might appoint.
Update: Is it just me or is this the second big piece of Bush administration news recently that has broken while The Daily Show and The Colbert Report were on vacation? (The previous was the Scooter Libby commutation.) Coincidence? I think not.
