Feel sorry for Al Gonzales?

Well, if you do feel sorry for our former Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales, you’re in special company – that of Alberto Gonzales:


These sorts of situations once were called being ‘disgraced’ but Gonzo denies the feeling…like Bush playing unaware of the ways he let the American people down and how truly crooked and false they both appear to the rest of the world ‘out there’ – but ‘in there’ they feel fine and self-satisfied to an astounding degree.

Except for Gonzo who’s feeling mighty put-upon by us all and infused with self-pity because we don’t appreciate his service more!

Well, I guess we’ll find out all about it from the book he’s supposedly writing. (He can write?)

Until then, you may wish to check out a post I wrote July 31, 2007 concerning Mr. Gonzales with some Astrology involved:


Eric Holder has a mess awaiting at Justice Dept


Over at Slate Magazine, Dahlia Lithwick has written an informative article on the mess being left behind at ‘our’ Justice Department by Attys General Michael Mukasey and his predecessor, Alberto Gonzales, a Bush compadre I have often referred to as a ‘weasel’ in previous posts…not that others haven’t, too, but I confess to being snugged deeply among them, primarily at my other blog, Stars Over Washington.

At one point, when forgetful Gonzo was mooning Congress with his ‘testimony’ about the politicizing of the DOJ, it seemed likely that the blog’s title would morph into Weasels Over Washington, but with Alberto’s resignation (given none too soon) I just barely avoided the change in time to save SO’W from its crooked-politician fate.

The only upside would’ve been being able to abbreviate its title to WO’W, and since I haven’t had pork in my diet for over 30 years, pehaps a WO’W would’ve been nicer than SO’W – especially with all the political weasels and other vermin infesting DC (my favorite city) these days.

More Disclosure: I have also been known to refer to Al Gonzales as ‘Gonzo.’ I just thought you should know, but don’t let knowing my Gonzo secrets keep you from reading Ms. Lithwick’s excellent article on what Holder – or whoever – is facing come January 20, 2009:


And as far as speculations going around about Eric Holder’s suitability as US Attorney General, I’m in my usual wait-and-see-what-they do-not-say mode until the new administration gets officially underway and the piper begins to play what may yet turn out to be much too similar a tune.

if you wish. So does my ‘Dahlia’ favor Dahlia Lithwick in the least? I doubt it but I can’t be certain!

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
