On The Gonzales Resignation 
27th-Aug-2007 11:37 am
It's bullshit, people. Before you get all excited about his resignation, know that a resignation is a far cry from an admission of guilt or even culpability. Adding insult to injury, he's going to be replaced by Michael Chertoff, which is rather like replacing the steaming pile of dog shit on the rug with a steaming pile of cat shit.

Very little has changed, if anything, it just got worse.

Fuck, we just can't win can we?

I won't be happy until this entire bush/cheney regime has cleared out of the white house. Every american who voted for these bastards should be ashamed of themselves!

That'll just be a small change in scenery. The legacy this administration has created will be a trickle down of fuck-ups of legendary proportions and will take -literally- decades to fix, and even then in many ways we're starting from scratch. And THAT'S only on foreign policy, let alone what's happened to our entire sense of government principles.

Precedents have been set for how to be irresponsible and mismanage, and sadly they're in place for anyone coming along to grab and run with to do whatever they want with seeming immunity.

I'm getting cynical. Cynicaler. How can we be sure we'll ever have elections we can trust again after the last two? It would be just like that lot to manufacture voting results again to make it appear like their party has "won". Or worse, to create some kind of situation so that they can cancel elections and become dictators. Acknowledged dictators, I mean--we all know they've been trying for the past seven years.

Looks like Chertoff is not so likely afterall:

At the bottom of the page there is this note;
UPDATE: A Senate aide with close connections to the Department of Justice tells CNN's Dana Bash Chertoff will not be the president's choice to replace Gonzales.

Generally speaking at least the cat shit is a smaller pile... I have no idea what I'm trying to say here. Insert something about dick size comparison, I guess. That usually works in any situation.

If anything it just shows another failure of the Bush administration--surprise, surprise. I really don't expect any change from this. It's going to be more of the same thing until he's out office and I do agree it will take years to undo the damage that has been done.

What's there to get excited about? It's more embarrassing mismanagement by our government. This entire administration is a lame duck.

Besides....it's so late in the administration's reign, anyway, what does it matter?
