It’s Good to be the Attorney General!

Murray Waas for National Journal:

Shortly before Attorney General Alberto Gonzales advised President Bush last year on whether to shut down a Justice Department inquiry regarding the administration’s warrantless domestic eavesdropping program, Gonzales learned that his own conduct would likely be a focus of the investigation, according to government records and interviews.

Yesterday, though, Jonah Goldberg and his readers made the point that no matter what Gonzalez may have done wrong and no matter how bad he may be at his job, it’s imperative that he not be fired because that would make liberals happy.
