About damn time. Incompetent U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez (AGAG) announced today that he's resigning effecting 17 September. His resignation statement said nothing at all about why he's leaving and did not attempt to address any of the concerns that have forced him out of office. This is almost certainly for the best. Bloomberg has a decent recap of Gonzalez' recent missteps and the controversy surrounding his "performance" of his job ("malfeasance" is a better word).
This is unquestionably a good thing for the country. Perhaps the Justice Department can get back to, you know, justice, instead of playing politics and blocking.
