Why Mr. Gonzales Should be Disbarred

Over the past years, it has become painfully clear that we simply cannot rely on social norms to control the Bush administration.  Ideas such as "limits on executive power" have been replaced by a "l'Etat? C'est moi" attitude that makes any excess possible, including expecting us to spend the next two years with an Attorney General with no credibility, reputation, or dignity.  We cannot expect Bush to fire Mr. Gonzales.  We cannot expect Mr. Gonzales to resign.  These are the acts of people who have understood and internalized the idea that there are limits to their conduct.  What we can do is have Gonzales disbarred.
Alberto Gonzales is admitted to practice (as I understand it) in Texas, and Texas, being a great state committed to the welfare of its citizens (as I understand it), has adopted rules of professional conduct for its attorneys.

The Case Against Cheney

Since day one, we have, for the most part; all assumed that it was the Vice Presidents office that leaked the information about Valarie Plame, violating the federal law that bars the "outing" of intelligence operatives.

Vice President Dick Cheney wrote a memo that effectively confirms his intimate involvement in strategizing about how to counter the inquiry into the Bush administration's politically motivated outing of CIA operative Valarie Plame. This was revealed in the former vice presidential chief of staff "Scooter" Libby's trial on charges of obstructing a federal investigation.

This blatant conspiracy to punish a critic of the Bush administration is just like one of the articles of impeachment against Richard Nixon in the seventies, who by the way was Dick Cheney's boss at the time. One could say he learned at the knee of the master.

ADMINISTRATION ATTACKS 'FACTIVIST' JUDGES

Reprinted from The Satirical Political Report http://satiricalpolitical.com

Within the past few days, both Vice President Cheney and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales have attacked critics of the Bush Administration's warrantless surveillance program, including a federal judge who ruled last August that the program was unconstitutional.

As Gonzales succinctly said, "we shouldn't let facts like the U.S. Constitution get in the way of our fight to defend freedom."

Gonzales also criticized judges who recognized such facts as the Enlightenment, the Geneva Convention, Congressional statutes, the New Deal, the Great Society and global warming.

Despite the Democrats' midterm election victory, the Attorney General insisted that the Administration would continue to push for federal judges who share the philosophy of a Scalia or Thomas: "We believe that judges should adhere to "original in-tent," that is, the norms of pre-Magna Carta feudal society, when most folks were living in tents."

Downballot Roundup: Statewide Races

Well, it was a landslide in Congress and in the Governor's mansions, but how did the 2006 elections affect downballot races? I've put together a rundown of the statewide races aside from Senator and Governor: Lt. Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Treasurer, Auditor, Comptroller, Agriculture Commissioner, Superintendant of Education, Mine Inspector (seriously, Arizona elects this)...

Just a quick note, I'm only covering races in which the party control has changed. Also, I'm only covering Lt. Governor seats that are elected independently of the Governor. If I've missed anything, be sure to tell me.

Broken up into regions, it looks something like this...
