Poor Alberto Gonzales! During those countless (and fruitless) Congressional hearings, Gonzales had but one job — protect George Bush. And so he lied, obfuscated, feigned amnesia, and did everything he could to muddy the truth. Consequently, this George Bush line, made during the Gonzales resignation announcement, made me laugh out loud:
It’s sad that we live in a time when a talented and honorable person like Al Gonzales is impeded from doing good work because his good name was dragged through the mud for political reasons.
Of course, the obvious question is “What good name?” But putting that aside, Bush fails to mention the provenance of all that mud. This haiku should explain it:
Dub’s dirty secrets
Created the “mud” Bush claims
Gonzales dragged through.
