US Attorney General "Alberto" Gonzales will not step down

In spite of recent evidence that Alberto Gonzales is a complete moron, he has denounced calls for his resignation, in the best Bush Administration fashion. Will he join the ranks of "Heckuva Job" Brown and Rummy or will he survive like Dick Cheney?

There apparently is some noise being made in DC about the firings of federal prosecutors. Gonzales acknowledges that mistakes have been made and that he, and his Justice Department, will learn from them.

But that is not the big news where Alberto is concerned. No, it's the other issue out there about how the FBI, housed in its enclave in the very same Justice Department, broke the law. It has spied on people, used surveillance illegally, and has broken other provisions of the so-called Patriot Act.

Here's the deal: I think this flap over the prosecutor firings is cover for the FBI story. What do you think?
