Given both Gonzales' and Bush's obstinate "Ain't goin' nowhere" stance in the face of ever-increasing scrutiny over the past few months, I have to admit that this too, like Rove's resignation, caught me off-guard.
That being said, let's hop in the Wayback Machine and look at what I wrote when former AG John Ashcroft resigned in '04:
I have a feeling a lot of people are going to be rejoicing over this news, but I'm a little leary of who BushCo is going to pull out of their hat to fill in the ranks. Forgive my pessimism, but this administration's history can be summed up in various permutations of bad and worse.We all know how that shook out, so here I sit waiting, again, for that other shoe.

For a boatload of production stills from the flick, jump on over to Dark Horizons and check 'em out (unless the lawyers at WB have had 'em pulled by the time you read this...).

In his rhetoric, the president usually seeks to distinguish the religion of Islam, which he has honored in the White House on many occasions, from the murderous perversion of that faith. And in his best moments after 9/11, he has defended the rights of Muslim Americans to live here without suffering persecution or prejudice.
Perhaps Bush's efforts deserve to be dismissed as little more than lip service, but semantics matter. The Republicans most likely to win their party's presidential nomination constantly use language that is meant to inflame anger against Muslims for political advantage.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm shocked -- shocked -- that Republicans would stoop to such tactics.
