Gonzales’ testimony in the House

Keith Olbermann observes Gonzales reading from the same script he used in April:

“So that’s why you’re not going to answer the question, because you want to protect the integrity of the investigations.” Conyers speaks with deceptive slowness, but before you know it he’s around your neck like a boa constrictor.

Congressman Schiff used to be an Assistant U.S. Attorney. He seems to relish the twist of fate which now lets him grill the U.S. Attorneys’ boss. And he’s about the only one in the House who brings the sort of heat that the Senate brought to bear on Gonzales in April.

On the whole, a disappointing performance by the Representatives after April’s Senate hearings. Schumer alone, in his shark-like attack, made for great television then. These hearings were sleepy by comparison.
