Say goodbye Gonzales

The latest document dump, tellingly delivered on a Friday, proves rather unequivocally to me, that Gonzales lied to Congress. He said he wasn't involved in the attoryney purge and yet here's a memo that says he chaired a meeting about it. Are we to believe that something that big escaped his attention? That he was out of the loop on the decision? Over 3,000 emails circulated about the matter that we know about. Who can seriously defend the man's veracity?

Certainly not Capt. Ed who wisely notes the longer the White House allows this scandal to build, the more damage it will cause.
One cannot support an Attorney General who misleads Congress, allows his staffers to mislead Congress, and deceives the American people, regardless of whether an R or a D follows his name or the majority control of Congress.
Don't get me wrong. It wouldn't break my heart to see the neo-cons crash into smithereens on the shoals of this scandal, but the last thing I think we need is for the entire GOP to self-destruct in the process. If there's one thing we've learned in the last six years, single party power is not healthy for the republic, no matter which side of the fence you're standing on.

We still need at least two parties to keep the system in balance. One can only hope that common sense conservatives will be able to reclaim theirs once Bush is done dragging it through the neo-con nightmare.

We can have a second party, without the Republicans. Germany manages to have multiple (more than two) in fact, and the National Socialists are not one of them.

Didn't politicians used to be our fellow Americans? What ever happened to "for the people, by the people?" It's beginning to feel like we are being taken over by aliens. I'm seriously considering moving to Europe.

Quite frankly I've found this Dept. of Justice firings business very complicated, and a bit boring. Thankfully, Jon Stewart keeps us up to date in this video:

Whig, I think multiple parties would do us a world of good if their influence was balanced between them. I think we're in this mess because for all the posturing the Dems and the Repubs maked deals to keep just themselves in power and routinely sell us all out.

Rocky, I'm asking myself the same question on a daily basis.

Ripper - your ability to find great video is just amazing.
