01/26/2005 Archived Entry: "Gonzales nomination heads toward full Senate vote"

AH, BUT THE RETURN OF DSL SERVICE means it's harder to ignore bad news. Sigh. Today, the Alberto "The Torturer" Gonzales nomination heads for a full Senate vote after Gonzales slimed his way past the Judiciary Committee. At least Russ Feingold has some eloquent words against Mr. "It's only torture if it causes major organ failure or death."

Would be nice if all that talk about the "rule of law" actually meant something.

All Orrin Hatch and NPR had to say about it was gee how thrilled and proud Hispanics must be. Yikes. If I were Hispanic, I think I'd be changing my ethnicity to Italian or Greek about now -- or asking Alberto "Abu Ghraib" Gonzales to change his.
