Nothing But Softballs for Gonzales

The Administration learned its lesson when they promoted the summarily creepy and generally unbalanced-sounding John Ashcroft to the role of Attorney General. After listening to numerous Senators kiss the teflon on Alberto “The Electrode” Gonzales’ ass all morning on C-SPAN (the only exception being, weirdly, Lindsay Graham, R-SC), it’s pretty obvious this guy is going to skate. He has an easy manner and genial likeability that is making it easy for him to squirm out from answering any tough question in a meaningful way.
