Gonzales is a liar - what a surprise!

Well what do you know? Even Republicans are starting to wake up and smell the stink of untruthiness surrounding Attorney General Gonzales. As more documentary evidence shows that Mr G has been telling porky pies (as the Brits would say) Senate Republicans are lying up

Sen. Arlen Spector R-PA: "We have to have an attorney general who is candid, truthful. And if we find out he has not been candid and truthful, that's a very compelling reason for him not to stay on."

Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb: "You cannot have the nation's chief law enforcement officer with a cloud hanging over his credibility."

Of course there are some Republicans like Sen Orrin Hatch, R-Utah who are still inhabiting Planet Delusional. “In my long experience with Attorney General Gonzales, he has always been straightforward and honest with me...So, unless there is clear evidence that the attorney general deliberately lied or misled Congress, I see no reason to call for his resignation.”

Meanwhile, over at the Imperial Presidency, Bush would rather go to the Supreme Court than allow Rovestopheles and Harriet "Firing the US Attorney's was all her fault" Meiers to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee under oath. This whole thing boggles the rationally mind. Ok, so if you don't want "political theater", as the right wingers are trying to characterize the investigation (political theater is only ok when it involves the "distinguishing marks" on Bill Clinton's member, according to these clowns)I can almost but not quite accept having private interviews. But to say that they a) cannot be under oath and b) there can be no written transcript - how obvious can it be that this Administration doesn't want to be held accountable for anything?
