Someone Liked It

So George W Bush was happy with Alberto Gonzales' testimony last week. He has "increased my confidence in his ability to do the job.”

It's not surprising. He spent two weeks practicing how to say 'I can't remember' and managed not to implicate any White House staff - basically by not answering any questions.

One senior Republican Congressional aide at work in Washington on Monday, who requested anonymity to speak candidly, called Mr. Bush’s statement that his confidence in Mr. Gonzales had grown after his testimony “curious”; another senior Republican aide asked, “Was he watching the same hearing as everyone else?”
It's pretty sad when the country's custodian of the law has to obfuscate to cover up for his master's misdeeds.

And I'm presuming that this isn't just a coincidence...
