Rove resigns, Gonzo gone, Cheney changed his mind

with one comment

This month has witnessed some promising developments regarding certain senior members of the Bush administration.

Earlier this month, Karl Rove (a.k.a, The Prince of Darkness), who was the chief strategist to Bush, announced his resignation. This was greeted with much fanfare and joy.

A quick bio.

Last month, the US Senate issued a subpoena against Karl Rove as part of an investigation into the sacking of eight federal prosecutors, but Mr Bush ordered him not to testify, citing executive privilege.

Mr Rove was also investigated in connection with the exposure of CIA agent Valerie Plame, though prosecutors decided he should not face any charges.

Next, it was the turn of Bush’s chief attorney general, Alberto “I can’t recall” Gonzales to (finally!) announce his resignation. As chief attorney general, Gonzales was accused of sacking federal prosecutors purely on political grounds (ie, they weren’t loyal bushies), and then blatantly lying and contradicting himself to cover up. If you feel particularly sadistic, you can watch him pathetically trying to squirm and wriggle away while being grilled by a senate hearing committee.

And finally, for something completely different. Can you name the Halliburton board member, who in 1994, gave a persuasive and astonishingly accurate warning about the dangers of invading Iraq and the instability it might cause? You’ve got to see it to believe it!
