Attorneygate Quickhits

The Senate Judiciary Committee wants to interview former White House Counsel Harriet Miers, her Deputy White House Counsel William Kelley, and Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove.

WSJ's Washington Wire reports that Gonzo's singing a sad tune today, saying it's up to President Bush whether he keeps his job. Ouch. WW also provides a transcript of Gonzo's interview this morning on CNN with anchor Miles O'Brien. The AG must have been squirming as O'Brien pelted him with questions about using the passive voice and whether it's time for him to freaking resign already. The best bit, though, is this exchange:

O'BRIEN: But should you offer your resignation? Is it time for you to offer your resignation?

GONZALES: It's the decision of the president of the United States to make. I'll be focused on identifying what went wrong here and correcting those mistakes, and focused on the good for the American people.

O’BRIEN: The decision to offer your resignation is yours, is it not?

GONZALES: I’m focused on doing my job.
Wow. What a douchebag. Too busy workin' to think about what an abject fucking failure I am, Miles!

Btw, I love that he's putting it on Bush, too. I ain't leaving! That bitch will have to fire my ass! Nice one.
