Other than the FISA vote, there's been some great news for America this month coming out of DC..
First, there was Karl Rove's resignation...
Then, Rick Renzi announced his "retirement"...
Now today, Alberto Gonzales announced his resignation. (Whooo hoooo!)
OK, I admit that Gonzales' departure seems to be less of a "resignation" and more a case of "falling on his sword for his liege at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue," but it's still a good thing.
None of these three, or any of the other Republicans caught up in the corruption/abuse of power scandals that *are* the Republican Party theses day, will ever see the inside of a prison cell as long as the Great Obstructor/Pardoner is in office, a few indictments would be nice.
All this begs the question:
Who's next? Who's the next high-profile Republican to announce his/her exit from public service?
While I would love to say Dick Cheney or George Bush (or better yet, both!), my guess is Lurita Doan, the head of the General Services Administration who used her administrative position to help Republican candidates in 2006, a violation of the Hatch Act.
