Just as long as he doesn't go to trial or that trial doesn't finish before January 2009 otherwise he'll just get pardoned by his good buddy George.

Oh, that is blessed news indeed. I hope there's a huge stinkin' trial that lasts for two-and-a-half years.

I want LOTS of prosecutions from our next President. Every Haliburton price-gouger, every perjuring SOB involved in Plame, these firings, ANYTHING. I'd call it a witch hunt that I want, but the term implies injustice, whereas this would be 180 degrees the opposite.

Just because Gonzo resigned doesn't mean he should be let off the hook and forgotten about. I hope he and everyone else that was part of this administration will someday get what's coming to them, although #1 makes a good point about waiting until after Bush can't pardon them.

I remember reading that after World War 2 people who had collaborated with the Nazis in countries they occupied, even ordinary citizens, were fired from their jobs, kicked out of their homes and ostracized by the community. I know--really, I know, so please don't lecture me about the Constitution in future posts--that it's wrong to wish the same thing will happen to Republicans in 2009, but I have to admit I enjoy thinking about it.

waiting for a new president to prosecute gonzales and others won't matter if bush pardons all his crony's in advance. that will leave only bush himself. ouch.

Credulous much? The sole source for this story appears to be John McKay, the fired US Attorney himself.

Gonzo certainly should be tried and jailed. Whether he will be is another question. On that score, I'd say a single uncorroborated claim by an aggrieved party who calls his own assertion a "best guess" is a pretty damned weak news peg.
