Dealing Oneself the Royal Flush, Dept.

Officials say Gonzales has resigned - Yahoo! News

In the most breaking of news, Li'l Albertito Gonzales is resigning from his post as Attorney General.

The 52-year-old weasel is reported to have handed in his resignation on Friday to the one man in government who couldn't smell his shit.

I can't imagine what possible euphemistic circumlocution Albertito will offer as the reason for his resignation, given that "to spend more time with my family" has recently been so overworked by administration ship-jumpers it's as tired as a twelve-year-old at a Michael Jackson sleep-over. Maybe he'll break with all precedent and tell us the truth: having managed to alienate everyone in Washington with even a nodding acquaintance with the concept of "rule of law", he's now pulling up stakes to go somewhere where people will truly appreciate his distinctive demolitionist touch with judicial systems. Like Kazakhstan.

At this point, I'd say justice has been done except that Li'l Albertito has been doing Justice so vigorously over the last two years that to restate this point would be to gild the turd, so to speak.

Instead, let's break a bottle on his hull and send him hurtling on his way; the dreadnought that once was, now a rowboat with one oar.
