Editorial: “Gonzales v. Gonzales”

All politics aside, this is not the kind of testimony you want to hear from a witness on your side! Here’s the opinion of the New York Times:

"If Attorney General Alberto Gonzales had gone to the Senate yesterday [4-19-2007] to convince the world that he ought to be fired, it’s hard to imagine how he could have done a better job, short of simply admitting the obvious: that the firing of eight United States attorneys was a partisan purge.

"Mr. Gonzales came across as a dull-witted apparatchik incapable of running one of the most important departments in the executive branch."
