Gonzales & Nifong, Attorneys At Law

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales cannot remember, (known in congressional hearings as "I can't recall") the fact that he was intimately involved in the firing of 8 U.S. Attorneys.

Mike Nifong at least understands that he used the power of his office to prosecute innocent people. He says he's "sorry."

They are both "sorry."

Everyday I hear "that's what makes lawyers look bad." Sometimes that comment is made when lawyers actually do things that make lawyers look bad, like lie (see above), and, cheat (see above). Many times its made when lawyers do things they are supposed to do, like obtain not guilty verdicts or large monetary settlements.

Now we have two lawyers, the highest officer of the Department of Justice, and an elected District Attorney, that are the best evidence of what makes lawyers look bad.

Alberto, you're not being honest, we all know it, I hope next Saturday I'm writing about your resignation.
