And not a moment too soon. From the NYT:
Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, whose tenure has been marred by controversy and accusations of perjury before Congress, has resigned. A senior administration official said he would announce the decision later this morning in Washington…. Mr. Bush has not yet chosen a replacement but will not leave the position open long, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the resignation had not yet been made public.
Word on the street is that Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff will take over. If that’s true, maybe Bush can arrange to nominate Chertoff on Wednesday, the two-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina’s landfall on the coast of Louisiana and Mississippi. After all, no ineptitude in the Bush administration goes unrewarded.
