Will Democrats Apologize After Gonzales Exoneration?
I've made no secret here before of my admiration for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, a man who seems to symbolize a new generation of leadership in today's Republican party. Democrats are clearly threatened by the fact that a Hispanic possessed of such intellect and ability would be a member of the Republican party, to the extent that in a way they have become obsessed. Indeed, over the last several weeks, it has been hard to watch the liberal news without hearing some liberal democrat saying the words "Gonzales resign."
So Democrats, in typical fashion of the type of tactics embraced by the Nancy Pelosi-Hugo Chavez leftists of today, marched full steam with their political theatrics. They decided they would throw everything they had at Gonzales, and wait for something to stick.
But there was one thing they didn't realize. Gonzales was too smart for them. Not only was there no evidence of his having done anything wrong to begin with, but he didn't get caught up in the democrats' clever semantic traps either. Gonzales answered every question, and answered them honestly, and left the hapless democrats with nothing.
Finally, today, the desperate democrats decided to give it one last go, in an unheard of socialist-style vote of no-confidence. Well, the move backfired majorly. Even the democrat led Senate was compelled to exonerate Gonzales of wrongdoing. Now there are two new words that people are starting to say in reference to Alberto Gonzales: Teflon Gonzo. Whether or not the democrats decide to apologize to Gonzales, one thing is sure: his stock has risen significantly from this ordeal.
