The Politico's Carrie Burdoff has this description of the political mood of the U.S. Senate regarding the Alberto Gonzales affair:
Senators from both parties have elevated the hearing into the U.S. attorney firings as critical to Gonzales's future as head of the Justice Department.Critical? To whom? 99 other Senators and the inside-the-beltway Pundit Corporation?
We would dryly Note that the Cowboy Governor has sure shown a willingness to work with those people in the past. Especially when the White House absolutely has the upper-hand.
And, we sure as heck aren't hearing any "Gee, I wonder what's going to happen to old Alberto and those sixty billion emails now that Leahy/Schumer have their banana hammocks in a bunch" talk at the Merrimack Diner these days.
In fact, now that we think about it, we never were.
Chuck Schumer should know that Power not perceived is power not attained.
This is a chickensh*t issue surrounding a mediocre (at best) Attorney General.
Let's all get over it.
