A Man with a Flashlight

A glimpse into the Death Star

that the Bush white house has been these six years. Alberto Gonzales (when he was still on his way to the top, and a hot prospect for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court) and White House chief of staff Andrew Card tried to extract John Ashcroft’s approval for their illegal wiretapping program at his hospital bed, when he was so incapacitated that he was not the acting attorney general. Ashcroft stood up to them even though he was lying down. I must say I gave the man too little credit.

Oh, and they were sent by the President, according to Bush appointee James Comey’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee (free partisan HQ).

Comey’s testimony caused Chuck Hagel to join the ranks of Republican senators calling for Gonzales to resign. The Washington Post reads Gonzales’ demise in the stars. Pray that they speak true. If ending American torture were a video game, Gonzales would be the boss at the end of level 1.
