Bush's Torture Czar Can't Find A Job

Poor Alberto Gonzalez. It seems the poor guy can't find a job these days, and he just can't seem to understand why people think so poorly of him.

Beans (Dubya's nickname for him) just can't seem to let go of the amnesia that overcame him during the congressional investigation into his politically motivated firings of a number of US attorneys.

Now he's forgotten all about how he gutted the Defense Department's civil rights policies and practiced widespread employment discrimination. Oh .. and that torture thing. He's forgotten all about his role in it. And then there was that thing about harrassing a hospitalized John Ashcroft into signing an order to continue legalization of warrantless wire tapping.

Raw Story
writes : The one-time Bush Attorney General admitted Tuesday that "skittish" lawfirms won't hire him after his departure under fire from the Justice Department surrounding his role in the political firings of nine US Attorneys.

Sounding dumbfounded, the 53-year-old former judge and corporate lawyer told the Wall Street Journal, "What is it that I did that is so fundamentally wrong, that deserves this kind of response to my service?"
