Adios Alberto

From the New York Times:

Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, whose tenure has been marred by controversy and accusations of perjury before Congress, has resigned. A senior administration official said he would announce the decision later this morning in Washington.

To spend more time with his family, no doubt.

Rumors are already circulating that he’ll be replaced by Michael Chertoff. Apparently Brownie wasn’t available. Well, whoever they get, let’s hope the Senate Judiciary Committee gives him/her/it a thorough going-over. As I used to hear in New Mexico, no se deje dar gato por liebre.
