Gonzales’ replacement – there won’t be any nominee.

The tubes of the internets are abuzz with today’s breaking news – the resignation of the worst attorney general our country has ever experienced.

Attorney General Gonzales resigns

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said he would resign Monday, after a scandal-tainted tenure marred by critics’ claims he was incompetent, hid the truth and may be guilty of perjury.

“Our troops have performed magnificently, under brilliant leadership, and have done precisely as the president asked,” he told NBC television Sunday.

Terror database yields few arrests

The US government’s terrorist screening database flagged Americans and foreigners as suspected terrorists almost 20,000 times last year, but only a small fraction of those questioned were arrested or denied entry into the United States, it was reported Saturday.
