Alberto Gonzales: ‘My reputation has suffered’

WHAT reputation?

Former Bush/Cheney pet attorney general Alberto Gonzales thinks his reputation is in the toilet because of his role in the firing of nine federal prosecutors.

Oh, and his midnight hospital visit to strongarm an ailing John Ashcroft into subverting the law.
And being Bunnypants’ private lawyer rather than the country’s.
And saying the Constitution doesn't provide habeas corpus.
And not recalling what an ass he was during the hearings.
And the domestic wiretapping program he approved.
And rejecting the Geneva Convention.
And his views on torture.
And

I think, if anything, his reputation does not reflect strongly enough just how culpable he is for radically subverting the rule of law and allowing for BushCo criminals and himself to wipe their collective asses with the Constitution.

If an accurate comprehension of the perfidy of his actions actually existed in the minds of a majority of Americans, having his reputation precede him would mean that he'd be pelted with garbage or excrement wherever he went. Instead, I imagine he'll get a Medal of Freedom somewhere down the line (or has he already?).

"I do, of course, think about our time together," Gonzales said. "But listen, I know that he has a life to live. I've got challenges and my life to live as well."

Awww. No more night time back rubs!

My reputation has suffered

That's so pathetic, starting with the use of the passive tense, and then the second-person address.

Berto, your reputation is not something remotely associated with you, it's you. No external force caused harm to it, you did.

"I fucked myself good, I guess," is your only accurate assessment.

I'll wonder forever, i guess, if you actually believed in the validity of any of the legal arguments you ponied up for the Bush admin, or were just a mechanic, a hitman, a torpedo.

There's a line in C.M. Kornbluth's Marching Morons which has to do with the ultimate realization of a guy a lot like Alberto Gonzales that he's been a stooge:

"Barlow realized that some things had not changed, that Jack Ketch was never asked to dinner however many shillings you paid him to do your dirty work..."

Sad, really.

Good analysis. Reminds of the phrase, "Mistakes were made" which verbally removes them from the realm of those actually committing the blunders.
