PHILADELPHIA The U.S. attorney general, who conveniently "forgets" things when testifying in front of Congress, won the "Sitting Duck Award" at the National Society of Newspaper Columnists (NSNC) conference Sunday.
"We're giving the award to Alberto Gonzales, but can't remember why," quipped NSNC President Mike Argento, columnist for the York (Pa.) Daily Record.
The annual Sitting Duck "honor" goes to a person or situation that's an easy target for columnists. Among the other candidates this year were Fox News host/Creators Syndicate columnist Bill O'Reilly and the media's overcoverage of shallow celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Britney Spears.
Great company there Fredo.
Laughingstocks make the BEST United States Attorney Generals!!!
