Disturbing News



You're Doing a Heckuva Job, Fredo


He's got support with me. I support the attorney general," Bush said at a hastily arranged news conference. He vowed to fight efforts to force top aides to testify about the firing of eight U.S. prosecutors, though he'll let them talk to Congress informally.

To the untrained ear, that should have put to rest concern that Gonzales' days in the Cabinet are numbered. But someone who's worked for this president as long as the man Bush calls "Fredo" would know there are no guarantees, not even when the boss says he likes you.




The nickname Bush gave Alberto Gonzales is Fredo -  from Wikipedia:

 in Mario Puzo's novel, Fredo was always thought of in the Corleone crime Family as the weakest and most foolish of the three Corleone brothers, and so was given its unimportant businesses to run.

"This weekend was the fourth anniversary of the beginning of the Iraqi war. ... A lot of anti-war protests and the Bush administration said they were surprised by the number of protests. And I was thinking, 'You know what? I'm not surprised they were surprised'" --David Letterman
