Let the Blood Vetting Begin!

Today's New York Times has an article previewing the Senate confirmation hearing for Attorney General nominee Alberto Gonzales that begin Thursday. The general consensus is that Gonzales will be confirmed, with Democratic support, but that the confirmation process will be bloody enough to prevent him later being elevated to the Supreme Court. Which is appropriate, given Gonzales's role in telling Dubya how he could avoid such "quaint" legalities as the Geneva Conventions (or even the Constitution).
