"I've asked for an independent investigation of what Mr. Gonzales said when he gave sworn testimony that I did not find credible," said Senator Leahy. "And
now, for the first time in history, the inspector general in the Department
of Justice is doing that investigation."
Although most Rightwing Madmen consider Gonzales a kind of "designated pinata", they were relieved when they discovered that Leahy was to be their adversary on the Muppet-like ex-Attorney General's investigation. Leahy was joined in his quest by 'every Democrat's favorite Senator', Arlen Specter (RINO-Pa).
"Somebody who understands the difference between being the president's lawyer and being the chief law enforcement officer for the United States, who has a duty to the American people, in addition to being a cabinet officer," said Senator Specter. "I think he ought to select somebody who will give him some candid, frank, forceful advice on what's constitutional."
Leahy may be remembered as Richard Durbin's (D-IL) primary defender in 'Nazi-gate'. Durbin likened US troops to "Nazis". Leahy rushed to his defense saying, "First of all, with Sen. Durbin, I'd be very careful about taking quotes off the Wall Street Journal editorial page."
He added, "They are notorious for taking quotes totally out of context," he added, "even making them up." When it was pointed out that the quotes had appeared online and were taken verbatim from audio recordings of Durbin's Senate speech, Leahy cunningly changed directions and fired back, "We could also think of the tens of thousands of Iraqi lives that have been lost since the fall of Hussein."
Leahy was said to be busy looking up the meaning of the word "credible", when asked to comment for this piece later in the day.
