Gonzales on a Very Hot Seat With Little Cover and Less Support

It did not bode well for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales when, before he uttered his first word to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) looked at him as if he were headed to the gallows and offered this advice: "Be alert and direct and honest with this committee. Give it your best shot." Things only went downhill from there for the attorney general.

What Gonzales Really Told Us

William Rivers Pitt writes: "The testimony given Thursday by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales before the Senate Judiciary Committee during a hearing to investigate the firing of eight Unites States attorneys, deserves a place of high honor in the Gibberish Hall of Fame. It was astonishing in its vapidity, almost to a point beyond description. The emptiness of Gonzales's answers, after several hours, became the political version of a Zen koan. They simply stopped my mind."

Gonzales v. Gonzales

The editors of The New York Times write: "If Attorney General Alberto Gonzales had gone to the Senate yesterday to convince the world that he ought to be fired, it's hard to imagine how he could have done a better job short of simply admitting the obvious: that the firing of eight United States attorneys was a partisan purge. Mr. Gonzales came across as a dull-witted apparatchik, incapable of running one of the most important departments in the executive branch."

Putting the Gone in Gonzales?

David Swanson writes: "Attorney General Alberto Gonzales assured the Senate Judiciary Committee today that nothing improper has been done and that, in addition, he's not to blame for it because he simply obeyed the CSLDJ, although he does not actually remember having done so. And if members of the CSLDJ contradict Gonzales or have acted in ways he does not approve of, well, you'll just have to ask Mr. Sampson about that."
