Abu G’s New Book
You know, these fuckers will keep us in business for at least the next two years, debunking their attempts to rewrite history.
Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who resigned last year amid congressional investigations, is working on a book to tell his side of the story of the political demise of the highest-ranking Hispanic in the history of the federal government.
"This is not about writing a best-seller," the Texan said in an interview. He said the book would be a success even if read only by his sons, now 13 and 16, "to set the record straight so they know what happened."
"I think there is so much misinformation out there, not just about me but about the Bush administration and what we were about. It’s important for our side of the story to be told. If it’s not told by us, no one is going to tell it," he said.
Since leaving office in August 2008 amid an investigation into the firing of U.S. attorneys, Gonzales said he has concentrated on cooperating with ongoing investigations. He also has given speeches, done some consulting and mediating and talked with law firms about jobs.
So far, nothing has panned out on the job front.
"It’s a rough economy right now, and it’s a tough time for a lot of law firms right now. Obviously they are very careful about bringing on new people, and they are going to be careful about bringing on people where there are questions about things that may have happened in their past," he said. "Over time, I’m confident those things will be resolved, and things will work themselves out." [my emphasis]
The best part, though: Gonzales is angling for Bush’s hoped-for future job: Commissioner of Baseball.
"I’m very wide open. I’ve had some people say I’m very fortunate that I’m at a point in my life where if I wanted to do something completely different — be baseball commissioner, for example, I would love a job in baseball, a plug there — I can do it." [my emphasis]
I suspect that Loyal Bushie code; it’s really a super-secret request for a pre-emptive pardon so Abu G doesn’t have to compete for the job Shrub wants.
