Obligatory Gonzales Post

Yeah, I stole the headline from Brad over at Brad’s Brain. It was just too good to resist.

Couple of things.

First off, the little toad said in his public resignation speech “…I have lived the American dream.”

Yes you did. You had a hardscrabble childhood, grew up to go to Harvard Law School, found yourself a rich white guy to suck up to, got yourself installed in the highest legal office in America, and then betrayed everything good this country has ever stood for.

Your dream. An American nightmare.

Good riddance. I hope to hell you end up in a prison cell. Preferably next to your boss.

Second off, how amazingly typical and revealing that Bush blamed everyone but the Toad for the little guy’s downfall. And that he couldn’t even get the speech right.

The Globe quotes Bush as saying “It’s sad we live in a time when a talented and honorable person like Alberto Gonzales is impeded from doing important work because his good name was dragged through the mud for political reasons.”

You’re right, Georgie. These are sad times. That’s on you.

But the Toad is neither talented nor honorable. Hell, he’s not even a good liar. And his ‘important work’? Let’s see – justifying torture, spying on Americans, suspending key provisions of the Bill of Rights, lying to Congress, lying to the American people, and on and on.

But what Bush really said was “It’s sad we live in a time when a talented and honorable person like Alberto Gonzales is impeding [brief pause]  from doing important work because his good name was dragged through the [long pause] mud for political reasons.”

Yes, George, m-u-d spells ‘mud’. You know, that stuff that’s covering you from head to foot, that stuff your brain lives in. The stuff you’ve smeared the country with. Yeah, that mud.

You and the Toad deserve each other, Georgie. But the rest of us, we Americans, we don’t deserve the foul things you’ve done to this country.
