Bloggers Unite Against Gonzales

In an unusual and somewhat inspired move, the folks at DailyKos are generating a petition amongst lefty bloggers to oppose the nomination of Alberto “the Electrode” Gonzales. I think the encouragement Barbara Boxer got from the blogosphere when she supported the Congressional Black Caucus’s protest of the Ohio vote has emboldened all Democrats as I sit here watching most of them oppose the nomination of George Bush’s wife #2, Condi Rice, on C-SPAN, so it just might have a profound effect. Who knows. So if you have a blog and want to support the cause, you can read the petition and add your name here. I added mine. ‘Cos I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you’re an American these human rights abuses are being done in YOUR name, and if you’re not acting to stop it, you’re complicit with it.
