If it's Friday . . .

It must be time for another embarrassing revelation from the Bush Administration.

This week it's Monica Goodling, the DOJ staffer who is pleading the Fifth to keep from testifying in Congress.

WASHINGTON, April 6 — Monica Goodling, the Justice Department official who helped coordinate the firings of eight United States attorneys, an episode that has jeopardized the position of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, resigned today.

Ms. Goodling, who has been on leave from her post as the Justice Department’s liaison to the White House, told Mr. Gonzales of her decision in a terse letter, a department official said.


Very cute, way they say she told Fredo about her decision, huh?

They are true to form, but don't you think they're kidding themselves if they think throwing any number of people in suits off the cliff will save Fredo?

Hey Jack,

Don't know if you caught this Boston Globe piece on Monica Goodling, her ("thin" would be polite) experience, and the connection between graduates of Regent Law School (her alma mater) and the Bush Administration.

Interesting b/c it shows the gross incompetence and/or lack of care of the administration in selecting its employees for the highest levels of government, and in particular, what is supposed to be the top echelon of the legal profession.
