Gonzales pleading not guilty

In a commentary in the Washington Post, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales (in photo) variously states five times that “nothing improper” occurred in the U.S. attorney firings. His only apology is for his “role in allowing this matter to spin into an undignified Washington spectacle.” That spectacle continues in a Thursday hearing (postponed because of the Virginia Tech massacre), with a cast including Gonzales and some steamed senators on the Judiciary Committee. Meanwhile, nearly 6 in 10 Americans polled by Washington Post-ABC News dislike how Gonzales has handled the issue.
