Two Cheers For Bush
by

It’s reading stuff like this that almost makes me want to come to the defense of Alberto Gonzales. Almost.

What it does make me realize is how much I like Bush’s complete indifference to (if not contempt for) smug, elite opinion. He’s sticking by his AG, and if you don’t like it, well, you can go screw yourself. Or not. Bush doesn’t care.

And boy, is this smug:

It is just about universally agreed upon that Gonzales will go down in history as the attorney general who helped the president: 1) torture, 2) wreak havoc on civil liberties, 3) fire U.S. attorneys who didn’t prosecute along preferred political lines, 4) demoralize the Department of Justice, 5) worsen Bush’s already dismal relationship with Congress, and 6) relentlessly hector a man in the intensive care unit.

“Universally agreed” by whom? The folks that the authors of this piece mingle with at cocktail parties?
