Don't get so excited. Tomorrow he might deny it and say he doesn't, to his knowledge, recall ever sending in a letter of resignation.

The question is: which one of Satan's minions will Bush nominate to replace him?

I never thought it was possible, but Gonzo made me yearn for the days of Attorney General John Ashcroft.

Wonkette was talking about possibly Chertoff to replace him, which is fucking ridiculous. But for now: hot damn!

How about Harriet Myers?

Hasta la vista brown man in the brownshirt.

Its a sad day for repression.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out, fucktard.

A more pressing issue would be what kind of losers are gung-ho to replace all these assholes on the way out? Who wants to work for not only the worst president in history but a lame duck as well?

My farewell message to Gonzo is, as Porky Pig would say: Get out! Out! OUT!! OUT!!! OUT!!!!!!!!!!!

I know it sounds sick, but I hope Mikey Chertoff replaces him, so we can see Skullface broasted alive, as Jenna Bush said, 'on LIVE TV!'

Hmmm...I have a feeling that there's all manner of behind the scenes chicanery that precedes these resignations, things along the lines of, "We have this document. Would you like to resign or be arrested?"

#2 - Give him a break. Tomorrow it will be 24 hours. Can you remember exactly what you did yesterday?

Expect a recess appointment of somebody equally unqualified.

Posted by Jimmy Legs | August 27, 2007 9:54 AM

Orrin Hatch was the other name being floated as a possible replacement.

This is the song that my son played this morning when he heard the news.

And another one goes, another one goes, another one bites the dust ...

AG surely can't recall why he's resigning nor what he will be doing with himself from now on.
