I just got finished watching today's Bush Presser. He's fighting to the death on this one not because it's fertile ground over which to fight, but because so much rests on this blinding shield of ignorance he's insisting on maintaining. They're going to the mats over Gonzales' Purge because if they allow an intrusive investigation here, they'll set a precedent. Fortunately for the Democrats, defending the right to politicize the execution of once-blind justice in this country is not exactly a position which will win the White House any converts. If a General's job is to pick the ground over which you fight, this Attorney General has failed in a serious way. Thank god for crony incompetence.
To maintain form, he ends the presser with: "thank you for your answers." Ouch.
