It looks like there wasn’t a whole lot of new information in Gonzales’ testimony this morning. Once again, he’s denied that the federal prosecutors were fired for political reasons, and once again he has completely failed to provide another plausible explanation.
At this point, there’s only one possible explanation for all of this. Gonzales is refusing to explain himself because he’s trying to protect the American people.
Who knows what dark secrets those prosecutors hold? And who knows to what lengths they would go to protect those secrets? That’s why Gonzales fired them, and that’s why he can’t reveal them as the vile, shape-shifting lizards they are to the world.
Thank you, Alberto Gonzales. You’re a true American hero.
