So what else has he lied about?

Senate Democrats put off a vote on White House counsel Alberto Gonzales's nomination to be attorney general, complaining he had provided evasive answers to questions about torture and the mistreatment of prisoners. But Gonzales's most surprising answer may have come on a different subject: his role in helping President Bush escape jury duty in a drunken-driving case involving a dancer at an Austin strip club in 1996. The judge and other lawyers in the case last week disputed a written account of the matter provided by Gonzales to the Senate Judiciary Committee. "It's a complete misrepresentation," said David Wahlberg, lawyer for the dancer, about Gonzales's account.

Well, if Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood could be denied the job because they hired undocumented domestics, this should do it for Alberto. Everyone knows that LYING is an impeachable offense, no? (Ask Bill Clinton) SOOO much more serious than endorsing and justifying torture, or failing to brief the governor properly in death penalty cases.

But then again, with this teflon president, who knows if ANYTHING will stick?

If one single Democrat votes for this punk, I really WILL throw my shoes at the TV.
