RE: Gonzales


A smart guy doesn’t buy my delusions of O’Connor replacement contentment: “If some folks at the White House aren’t seriously promoting Gonzales, then why have they and their surrogates in recent days been pushing the message that Gonzales would be just fine? If they wanted to stop the criticism, the message would instead be that he’s not a candidate.”

Because Rove is a genius? It’s my only answer. But I thought the twins at the convention mentioning Barbara Bush and Sex and the City in the near same breath was Rovian brilliant too. Who isn’t embarrrassed by their kids now and again?

And, come to think of it, who won the election?
