Gonzales Resigns! -- The good/bad news just keeps on coming, folks! Yes, we can savor the departure of TortureBoy for a while, and look forward to the White House flailing around for a replacement of equal repellence and spinelessness. But the downside is, these jokers still have 15+ months in office, and I doubt Congress can get it together to open the right size can of Indictment WhoopAss in time.
And just to harsh your Monday a little more, check out this long piece from Rolling Stone,"The Great Iraq Swindle," on the complete fraud of government contracting in Iraq: "According to the most reliable estimates, we have doled out more than $500 billion for the war, as well as $44 billion for the Iraqi reconstruction effort. And what did America's contractors give us for that money? They built big steaming shit piles, set brand-new trucks on fire, drove back and forth across the desert for no reason at all and dumped bags of nails in ditches. For the most part, nobody at home cared, because war on some level is always a waste." Yikes.
