So much for a leg to stand on. If you missed it this morning, Crooks and Liars (bless ’em!) has the video up of Alberto Gonzales on the Today Show. Watch him dodge, weave, tap dance and pretty much do everything he can to avoid the whole legal justification thing.

Gee…could that be because they have no legal justification for it other than the whole "you can’t tell me what to do, I run this country" meme. (Somehow, having a Preznit who doesn’t play well with others seems like more of a liability these days for the rest of his staff, doesn’t it?)

I talked about this earlier here. Letter of the law, my ass.

I’m also told that video of Russ Feingold from today will be up soon on C&L as well. Could we live without them?
