McCain Calls for Gonzales to Resign

Mike Allen of The Politico reports that Republican presidential candidate John McCain has called on recently amnesiac Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to resign. “Out of loyalty to the president, he should obviously step down,” McCain said. “He’s not serving the president well. I reached that conclusion a long time ago. I just haven’t been asked.”

With a number of high profile Republicans lined up against Gonzales, his days appear numbered. The question is, will Bush continue to ignore political reality and stand by his old friend? Either way, it's win-win for the Democrats. If Bush stands his ground, he will be seen, once more, as privileging personal allegiance above - hmmm, what's the word I'm looking for here? - competence. If he bends to the rules of rationality (never really a safe bet with this man) and gives old Al the boot, the Democrats will have a nice long confirmation hearing with which they can berate the administration's justice dept. policies in front of an attentive national media.

    No way, dude. I much prefer calling you petty, thin-skinned fool who goes off like Roman candle at the smallest challenge to your ego from behind the curtain of anonymity.

    Your turn, "motherfucker"!

    Be the big man, Morgan, and don't dignify this invective with a response. You'll look less like a self-absorbed prick, though only marginally.

    (Oh shit, can you stand it? "He said what to me?" Fume, fume...)

    Morgan: Hey, Seal, could you do me one? There was this comment on the blog that basically criticized me for responding to small challenges to my ego. So, I don't want to respond to it. On the other hand, if no one responds, I'm really gonna look like a bitch. So could you fire back for me?

    Seal: Yah, sure!!! I'm sweet at that.

    [five minutes later]

    Morgan (spits out drink): Whoa, WTF??? That come-back sucked. Now what am I gonna do?

    (to be continued...)

  8. If I keep you going, you may end up saying something amusing, so please, finish the story.

  9. Yeah...I'd respond, but I'm not sure I understand what it means to go off "like a roman candle."

    I'm guessing that's insult right?

    Seal: "If I keep you going, you may end up saying something amusing, so please, finish the story."

    Me: Dude, it's choose your own adventure. You chose to say, essentially, "That's not funny," a response which in its weakness and obviousness is funny for reasons you didn't intend.

    Morgan: "Yeah...I'd respond, but I'm not sure I understand what it means to go off 'like a roman candle.'"

    Me: That WAS a response, you dolt. Pretty obvious. Maybe you thought of that soon after you submitted this in one of your trademark fits of rage. "Oh, shit!"

    As for a Roman candle, it's a kind of fireworks. Fireworks, as in bursting anger, though on a small scale and kind of pathetic. A simile. Lots of times, similes don't have to be explained, the readers kind of figure them out.

    Morgan: "I'm guessing that's [an] insult right?"

    Me: Yeah! You got it, buddy. You're keeping up.

    Morgan: "you really saved face with that one"

    Me: I don't have a face to save, being anonymous. I'm trying to mock the hell out of you, s pretty easy task so far. Hey, welcome to the blog, motherfucker! Considering how sensitive you are, I'd give you about a week before you begin foaming at the mouth with madness and rage.

  15. So apparently this blog is like some kind of frat, with a mandatory pledge term that involves hazing from the readers. I don't know, I just think it's really funny that as soon as a new poster is announced, everyone feels the need to be as vicious to him/her as possible.

    Nah, dude, I'm eight times more ironical than you. I've irony in my lymph nodes, seeping out my pores, stinking up the room. You just walked into my trap.

    ...hahaha, I'm just kidding. All this was a big joke, hahaha. Morgan, welcome to THE LITTLE GREEN BLOG.
