Gonzo ain’t gonna resign…
Indeed, i expect his behavior to become more and more outrageous and bizarre…
His job now is to draw ALL the attention of the Congress onto himself, to MAKE Congress impeach him, thereby drawing away all the oxygen from other efforts to impeach cheney/bush.
Any contemplated impeachment of Gonzales would occupy the Congress’s attention through the rest of this year, and probably well into the primary season. There's no way there could be enough energy--much less, the votes--needed to pursue aggressive investigations into Cheney/Bush's malfeasances with an 'on-going investigation' of Abu Bin Gonzo.
In a strange way, impeaching Gonzales would actually benefit the GOPhascist fux because it would focus attention on one, relatively minor actor in the drama, and relieve the rest of the Busheviks, and not incidentally the aspirants to replace them, of the scrutiny they so richly deserve and so desperately need.
And the greasy li'l pimp’ll be amply rewarded. One could expect dozens of “free Alberto" defense/slush funds to spring up, to be financed by donations from the wealthiest members of the GOPhascist inner circle. Proceeds from which he'd be free to dispose of as he wished.
Impeaching Gonzo will be GOOD for the GOPukes.
