Alberto's Week Off to a Very Bad Start

Attorney General Albert Gonzales has a boatload of troubles these days. Last week, new testimony made it appear as though the AG either misled or lied to Congress. That's a problem, since perjury is a crime.

Yesterday, Fox News asked the White House to supply someone to defend Gonzales on one of its Sunday talk shows. No defender turned up. The Sunday New York Times published an editorial calling for Gonzales to be fired or impeached. A sample line:

Americans have been waiting months for Mr. Bush to fire Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who long ago proved that he was incompetent and more recently has proved that he can’t tell the truth.

Today House Democrats announced that they will begin an impeachment investigation against the embattled AG.

Gonzales may survive all this; after all, the President seems to love the guy. But as we noted above, Alberto's week is off to a rocky start. Stay tuned.
