U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has yielded to his own crapulence and officially resigned his post. Thank god. One less lying idiot in the White House. I'm going to assume some sort of whitewash will be coming down about this- something to the effect of "wants to spend more time with his family"- but it's safe to assume Gonzales' departure is because both Congress and the Senate have lost faith in him over the firing of eight federal prosecutors, and the fact that he sucks.
I feel bad for the schmuck they get to replace him. Sixteen months tethered to a sinking ship.
