Gonzales Wants It Both Ways
The Bush administration seems to think little of the Constitution, but now an aide to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales (who said the Geneva Conventions are “quaint”) will be taking the Fifth before a Senate panel. It just goes to show that elites can have their cake and eat it, too. Gonzales also walked out of a press conference early when pressed for answers on the attorney firing scandal. What are they hiding? If they are really interested in accountability as Gonzales claims (“I believe in keeping accountability”), and if they are really innocent of wrongdoing as they portray themselves, why run from the press and why take the Fifth?
