Well, At Least They’re Consistent…

As with Iraq, it appears that BushCo. believes that only the person who makes the mess is qualified to clean it up:

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales says he’s staying at the Justice Department to try to repair its broken image, telling Congress in a statement released Monday he’s troubled that politics may have played a part in hiring career federal prosecutors.

(…)

“Reinforcing public confidence in the department is also critical, and will be one of my top priorities as attorney general for the remainder of my term,” Gonzales said in the prepared statement.

“I believe very strongly that there is no place for political considerations in the hiring of our career employees or in the administration of justice,” he said. “As such, these allegations have been troubling to hear. From my perspective, there are two options available in light of these allegations. I would walk away or I could devote my time, effort and energy to fix the problems. Since I have never been one to quit, I decided that the best course of action was to remain here and fix the problems.”

It’s like some weird variation on the Peter Principle – the Peter Pace Principle, maybe?

    totally bizarre, but nothing these guys do should surprise us, I guess.

    The only thing they could do to surprise me would be to tell the truth – I would probably die from shock.
