Gonzales latest... impeachment, resignation & obvious lies

Gonzales is in trouble for his obvious role (and subsequent lies) in the firing of US attorneys. More information comes out every day, prompting calls for his dismissal. Bush has defended him.

*One of the fired attorneys says that he was questioned by Bush's Counsel about his decision to not bring voter fraud charges against Democrats in Wash St.

*Democrat Dianne Feinstein calls on Gonzales to resign.

*Even Republicans are jumping ship...

*This man thinks we should impeach.... Gonzales.

*Not that much more evidence is needed but Tim Russert noted that if the dismissal was due to poor performance, doesn't the assessment of poor performance mean that Gonzales was involved in the cases?

*Harry Reid says Gonzales'll be gone in a month -- one way or another.
