"One day there will be a new attorney general, maybe sooner rather than later," Specter said sharply. In an interview with Reuters after the meeting with Gonzales, Specter said his comments did not imply he thought the attorney general should be replaced.No, apparently those comments implied that Specter was employing the philosophical tenets of Rene Descartes when pondering the many workings of space and time. Or he's a chickenshit who backed down. You choose.
Well, in any case, wouldn't that be a shame if Gonalez were actually replaced. It would suck to have an Attorney General who goes after criminals and terrorists instead of adults who watch pornography (no, there are no Republicans among that group).
Proposing having an Attorney General who doesn't hire and fire based upon politics, or more accurately, hire those who metaphorically practice a Mark Foley-style petting of this administration (in the case of some CPAC guests, however, not so metaphorical) would also be just downright crazy talk. Like Rush on the burgers with the Peyote sauce.
Wow, who ever thought we'd be looking back nostalgically at John Ashcroft?
