Before joining the chorus urging Attorney General Gonzales to resign, I thought that as a public service (and excuse to avoid grading yesterday's midterm) a listing of the top ten replacements might be useful.
1. John Ashcroft--been there, done that.
2. Kenneth Starr--special expertise in prosecuting Democrats.
3. Robert Bork--special expertise in firing prosecutors.
4. Clarence Thomas--Attorney General provides more opportunities than the Supreme Court for seeking vengeance.
5. John Yoo--already busy at work explaining why during a time of crisis (as defined by the President) the president has unreviewable discretion to suspend the 22nd amendment and determine the victors in all elections.
6. Harriett Miers--recent memos designed to make liberals feel better about Alito being on the Supreme Court.
7. Oliver North--more experienced than present incumbent at running rogue operations.
8. G. Gordon Liddy--was miffed at not being invited to other Nixon Administration Reunion events sponsored by the Bush Administration.
9. Ann Coulter--another instance where the Bush administration finds a job for a soon to be underemployed conservative.
10. Osama Bin Laden--if DineshD'Souza is right, shares Bush administration's conservative family values. Certainly agrees with Bush administration on the morality of using torture against declared enemies. Posted
