Keep him, please

There is an element of low-brow comedy to this story:

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, under fire at home with calls for his resignation, is spending some time in Iraq.

The Justice Department said that Gonzales arrived in Baghdad on Saturday for his third trip to Iraq to meet with department officials who have been there to help fashion the country's legal system.

"I am pleased to see firsthand ... the progress that the men and women of the Justice Department have made to rebuild Iraq's legal system and law enforcement infrastructure," Gonzales said in a statement released by the department.

His optimistic assessment came despite the frequent sectarian lawlessness and killings in the country.;_ylt=AhsuaSFYYrMoWdL.uvDAvoSWwvIE

Given that Gonzo is totally corrupt, and that the Iraqi justice system has been plagued with corruption, it should be a great fit. I propose that he stay there and run Iraq's justice department. In return, we'll take one of Iraq's top justice's to run ours. He might not be any better, but I doubt he'd be any worse.

"In an unverified exchange, Attorney General Gonzales(r-un away!!!) allegedly remarked to his Green Zone valet, Julio Ahmed, that, "The beatings I got during congressional testimonies makes this place seem like Club Med!"
