Henhouse follies

So Bush wants Alberto Gonzalez to be the next Attorney General. You know, the obliging lawyer who wrote those handy one-page summaries that made it so easy for Bush to execute 152 Texas convicts?

Of course, since our previous AG has solved the problems of crime and terrorism already, I guess pretty much anyone will do, right?

Or . . . is it just possible that Gonzalez's authorship of the torture-authorization memos is a factor? After all, as we've pointed out, those memos make Gonzalez, Bush, and every member of the government who helped implement their policies culpable in a federal crime for which they could receive the death penalty.

No, no . . . I'm sure that has nothing to do with it.
