Gergen Says Abu G Will Go
"Sooner rather than later," he just said on CNN. That's his opinion, of course, but Gergen is the mouthpiece of the Republican faction of the Wise Old Men of Washington.
Well, maybe, and a Friday (probably at about 7:15 in the evening) would be the perfect time.
On the other hand, David Gergen may be speaking not from inside knowledge, but rather from a sense that this is how Washington works -- once the embarrassment and shame of a scandal hit a certain level, the president simply has to cut the guy loose.
In which case Gergen is utterly clueless about the current president, even after six-plus years, because the current president is incapable of embarrassment or shame.
Especially now that neither Bush nor Cheney will never run for anything again, and now that no midterm election cycle will be a referendum on them, Bush responds to every outraged demand with "Nyah-nyah! You can't make me!" I could be wrong, but I think that's going to be his response with regard to Gonzales until 1/20/09.
