Gonzalez Must Go

Every time there is a new constitutional crisis, or, to be more accurate, every time there is a new abuse by the Bush Administration, they trot out Alberto Gonzalez to paper it over, to put up his bland, seemingly open and forthright, countenance, to cover over the latest outrage his boss has perpetrated. One of his more striking public performances lately was his defense of the Bush abolition of habeas corpus. "There is no express grant of habeas in the Constitution."


Now the Times says enough is enough: Mr. Bush should dismiss Mr. Gonzales and finally appoint an attorney general who will use the job to enforce the law and defend the Constitution.


This is clearly right.


Time to contact our congressional delegation and get them to push for Gonzalez to be fired:


Bernie Sanders: 1-802-862-0697 - or - 1-800-339-9834 (In State Only)

Pat Leahy: senator_leahy@leahy.senate.gov
