Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, whose tenure has been marred by controversy and accusations of perjury before Congress, has resigned. A senior administration official said he would announce the decision later this morning in Washington.
O frabjous day! Calloo, callay!
Update, 9:50 a.m.: It occurs to me that the Senate is in recess now. And AG Gonzales has resigned now. Which means that Spurious George could appoint anyone he wants in a recess appointment now, and that person would hold the AG office until the end of Bush's reign.
