“I think that the American people lose if I spend all my time worrying about congressional requests for information, if I spend all my time responding to subpoenas.”

-- Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, on declining to respond to Congressional requests for information about the recent United States attorney firings, which were apparently highly-politically motivated despite explicit denials from Gonzales and other DOJ figures

As quoted http://www.unionleader.com/article.aspx?headline=Robert+D.+Novak%3A+Another+Hillary+defector&articleId=65463a14-f0a4-4663-9f46-1d5189c56100

Wonder how the Republican-controlled 106th Congress would have viewed such a response from Janet Reno or any other administration official during the heady days of the Clinton impeachment? Doesn't matter, it's all good now.

Y'know, given the 'stellar' personalities from Texas in this administration, I'll be very surprised if we're not simply tossed out of the Union when all this is over.

One more time... I am *SO* *VERY* *SORRY*! We really should have done SOMETHING before these jackasses were ever allowed out of the state.
