Hello, Alberto Gonzalez...

...goodbye civil rights.

If GW has his way, the new attorney general will be Alberto Gonzalez. For those of you not familiar with the name, while he is hispanic, and that's arguably* a good thing, he also happens to be part of the legal team that decided that the torture at Abu Ghraib was just peachy-keen and totally legal.

Yes - amazingly, we've gone from bad to worse. Let's hope that he doesn't get confirmed by the Senate, but hey, all of the Republicans with any morals already sold themselves out to GW this year, so not much chance of that.


* - As a minority, I'm a big fan of seeing minorities in the upper echelons, but only if they belong there. I'd rather have a competent, honest caucasian in a post than an evil, incompetent minority. (Not that I'm saying Gonzalez is evil or incompetent, I'm just talking purely theoretically, and the fact that he condones torture - and did it poorly - has nothing to do with it. *cough*)
