Ashcroft resigns....4 years too late

It's good for everyone involved that Johnny Reb (as I like to call him) resigned. Not only was he profoundly weird (see, eg: hates calico cats, thinks they're satanic; covers up classical sculpture, no doubt in anticipation of Janet Jackson fracas), he was a genuinely bad Attorney General. He was utterly incompetent at prosecuting terrorists (what with his 0-3 or so record), and his zany forays into going after porn and bong-lovers didn't really help Bush's PR. And, if the media were responsible, they would've picked up on his support for torture.....er......I meant "extraordinary rendition."

Well, at least he has the free time to devote to his songwriting and his rematch against Mel Carnahan.
