The scariest thing I've read all year.
AG Prediction: Gonzalez out, Hatch in
Sat May 19, 7:28 PM ET
Alberto Gonzalez may be holding on as head of the Justice Department until next weekend when Congress takes its Memorial Day break, which would allow W an immediate recess appointment to fill the post. This makes sense. And this means Bush has already got Al's successor lined up. To avoid further antagonisms with Congress, the choice is.....Orrin Hatch of Utah.
I've been hearing rumblings about this all over the vast internets, especially the interim recess appointment part. A couple of bloggers, some over on the dark side, have mentioned Hatch as well.
