Gonzales Going The Way Of Rummy?

Dana Perino gets slamed upside the head with Victoria's Helen Thomas Special Cast Iron Skillet today at the Whitehouse press briefing. I love these kinds of questions that point out the W, Rove and Co. hypocrisy very obviously:

Q How can we have confidence in the President's 100 percent support for Secretary Gonzales, the Attorney General, when he also had support for Mr. Rumsfeld, 100 percent, right up to the time that he was fired or resigned?

MS. PERINO: What I can tell you is I spoke to the President this morning and he has -- the Attorney General has the President's full confidence.
So, judging by what we know happened in the past with Rummy, we all aught to be assuming the W, Rove and Co is fully lying about the situation with the AG or does the President really have his head that far up Rove's....oh, you get the drift...such that he can't tell what's really happening with the Dept. of Justice?

P.S. Where's Rummy, anyway? ...Can any one confirm that Rummy is still getting paid and holds down an office in the Pentagon to this day? Last I heard, we was still getting paid in US Taxpayer dollars. Inquiring minds want to know...

Next-to-last refuge of a scoundrel: Think of the children!

MS. PERINO: There hasn't been evidence of any -- of anything improper or wrongdoing in the decision for the Justice Department to recommend the replacement of eight U.S. attorneys who serve at the pleasure of the President. And that's why the President continues to have confidence in the Attorney General that they -- that he runs a great department, they have wonderful employees who work there, they are moving forward on numerous corruption cases and helping prevent child exploitation. [Emphasis added]

Last refuge of a scoundrel: Think of the troops!

Q Dana, there are several -- you addressed some of this this morning, but there are several veterans groups calling this -- this event at Walter Reed a photo op. What's the response to that?

MS. PERINO: I think that's an unfortunate characterization. I think that any of you who have had an opportunity -- and I've been very fortunate to have been able to do a couple of times -- actually, a little bit -- maybe four -- to go with the President to go and see wounded soldiers. And there is no more personal moment that he has, and it's one of the -- one of the memories that I cherish the most of working for the President, because you see his gratitude ...

The troops already in Iraq have been extended to 16 months boots-on-the-ground for the 'surge,' but in all probability all troops going to Iraq for the foreseeable future are going to be extended to 16 months.

If the mother-fathers want for credibility they could get it by leading from the front. The President, VP, Cabinet and the Congress can go to the Green Zone. Come home when the job is done.
