Cornyn Defends Gonzales to the End

Yet another Bush crony had his wings clipped and is headed back to Texas to wait until the next molt.

Alberto Gonzales may be a pariah to most Republicans, but the administration knew who to call when it needed a talking head on his resignation. As one of the few Republicans still willing to defend "Fredo," Senator Cornyn proves once again that his ethical compass points a few degrees shy of true north.

In an interview about Gonzales, Cornyn responded with a rather telling choice of words.
"I think he was just worn down by the criticism. This thing has a Chinese water torture effect of drip, drip, drip, drip.
And TMPMuckracker notes, all the scurrying around to defend the failed war, er, failed attorney general, must have blown Cornyn's talking points out of order.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) has a unique take on what's next to come at the Justice Department in the wake of Alberto Gonzales. Just now on CNN:

"This will not bring peace. This will bring more chaos."

No word yet on whether the chaos created by Alberto Gonzales will follow us home.
If you're from Texas, that's not funny.
