nature loves her little surprises.
Continual crisis!

Strike Up the Band!

Well, rumors are Alberto Gonzales has finally seen the writing on the wall. And in the papers, and on the TV crawls, and writen in lipstick on his bathroom mirror. Rumors are the Great Gonzo will resign. I guess he wasn't scheduled for any oversite meetings this week.

Oh John Scalzi, aren't you sad you're on haitus today? Hmm, anybody taking bets that he'll do a post on this in violation of his own sabatical? I mean, sure, the big Karl goes AWOL and you can let it slide. But Karl Rove and Alberto Gonzales? Come on, John. Don't just unload on Krissy and Athena. You know you wanna post about it. We know you wanna post about it. :)

So, as the munchkins prance about having had another house fall on another witch, the people in Oz wonder about how this will affect their stock portfolios.

Just for the record, this is the time in all administrations that the major players leave and fresh faces get their feet wet in those positions so that they can serve the next administrations. It's a natural thing. However, being hounded out of town on a rail isn't normal.

I'm just curious how the GWB spin-ninjas will turn Gonzo's sudden resignation into "It's all part of the plan" (visualize Obi Wan doing the "these are not the droids you're looking for..." shtick) instead of the so obvious "Oh God, Oh God, the rats are jumping over the side, we're going down..."

Whatever, good riddance, Asshole.

And the spin-ninja's answer is, "Gonzo was hounded out of town by partisan wielding Democrats." Forgetting that the Republicans on the Judicial Committees where his most vocal critics.

There was some rumor that President Bush made an announcement that whomever hadn't resigned by Labor Day was on until the January 2009.

For some reason, I don't think Mr. Bush will have the courage to do what Clinton did for the press dinner when he made a home movie about how empty the Whitehouse is now that he's a lame duck (there was a scene where he runs a brown bag lunch out to Hillary as she pulls away in the limo, hillarious).
