Sorry for the tired metaphor, but Gonzo is gone! That’s the happy news I woke up to this morning. According to the New York Times, Gonzales submitted his resignation to the president by telephone on Friday, thus saving Congress the effort of impeaching his sorry ass (though of course they remain free to consider criminal charges given his apparent perjury in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this year).

I’m going to be all smiles at work this morning. The guy who thinks that spying on Americans without a warrant is okay and that the Geneva Conventions are “quaint” and who apparently can’t remember anything but his own name is leaving the Department of Justice! Have a great day everyone!

And of course, it goes without saying that I still think that Bush and Cheney ought to be impeached.
