Gonzales should be sent packing

The Gonzales hearing (I watched several hours of it on the CSPAN website last night) is a fucking joke. This administration, and Gonzales as the President's counsel had a major role in it, has done all it can to see how far they could go to physically harm people without getting in trouble (see this Disourse.net dissection of the "Bybee" memo) . Gonzales said questions about torture are "hypotheticals" that are never going to occur. Well guess what Alberto, it already did. These Orwellian types of exchanges made up much of the hearing. Democrats would basically hound him for answers, and Republicans would make apologies for him and question the patriotism of those questioning him. To paraphrase Michael Moore, we are living in fictitious times.
