Under the Bus

Which Whitehouse operative will take the fall for JusticeGate next?
We know Bush and Rove were all over this stinking US Attorney witch hunt, and we know lil' whatsisname Kyle Sampson was kind enough to step down as the traditional Bush scapegoat (ala Harriet Myers) but the Capitol Hill gang just aren't satisfied. The story has legs, they have to be accountable.
Yep, they want a bigger fish this time.
Like Bush loves to do, Alberto Gonzales "accepted responsibility" for the mess- without any vow to do anything about it. Like convicted criminal Kenneth Lay unsuccessfully did, he accepted responsibility then quickly added, "But I have 100,000+ employees and it's hard, hard work to keep track of what all of them are doing..."
Bullshit. The Attorney General of the United States is responsible for the acts of all of his employees. His proclaimed ignorance is no defense. We all know Gonzales was in this despicable caper up to his neck.
We all know Karl Rove and Bush were in this up to their necks.
And Capitol Hill isn't going to accept a nobody like Kyle Sampson as the sacrificial lamb and move on without further consequences. Not this time.
I predict Gonzales will have to take the fall this time and throw himself under the bus.
I only wish I was the bus driver.

P.S. And speaking of Rove, why the hell are we taxpayers paying for a political operative in the Whitehouse?
He needs to draw his salary from the Republican National Committee because he sure as hell isn't on Bush's staff to do the Peoples' bidding.

Gonzo is going down for this, no doubt.

I think I'm coming down with a case of CFS - Corruption Fatigue Syndrome. Symptoms include involuntary head shaking, heavy sighing and repetitive counting of days until 2008.

Get this--
When Kyle Sampson stepped down he actually just stepped over. They tried to assign him to another slot in Gonzales' office- same pay, etc. They got caught.
What a crock.
