Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid On Gonzo

Alberto Gonzales was never the right man for this job. He lacked independence, he lacked judgment, and he lacked the spine to say no to Karl Rove. This resignation is not the end of the story. Congress must get to the bottom of this mess and follow the facts where they lead, into the White House.
Amen.

Anyone who has followed Karl Rove's career, from his days in Texas, knows that the attorney firings were the kind of politicization of the institutions of democracy on which this scumbag thrives. He used friendly FBI to get stories in the paper on just about everyone his clients ran against back then. But I digress.

In other words, the investigation MUST continue. Gonzo must be held accountable, for he was just kept there to protect Rove's ass anhyow. More importantly, that traitorous, covert-agent outing, government-corrupting dirtbag known as Turd Blossom (just about the only thing Bush has ever gotten right) must be subjected to the rule of law he so despises.

Josh Marshal is betting on a Recess Appointment to fill the vacancy. Which sounds about right to me. In which case, its a pretty good bet that there will be No substantive investigation and No accountability.

Another likely scenario, in my opinion, would be the Senate Democrats cave and confirm whoever Bush nominates. Its not like it hasn't happened before.

Sad to say, but I predict these 2 things:

1). As Sean says there will be a recess AG appointment or Congress will roll over like happy puppies for the Komisar of Katrina, Mike Chertoff.

2). The investigations into Fredo and the Turd will shrivel up and die as Leahy and Waxman are convinced that further investigation is hurting the country and, after all, isn't resignation actually what they wanted?

Hate me later :)
