The legacy tour continues

By Creature

As if hearing from George, Dick, Condi, and Laura weren't enough, here's Alberto Gonzales playing the victim as he tries to shit-shine his forever tarnished image:

"What is it that I did that is so fundamentally wrong, that deserves this kind of response to my service? ... "[F]or some reason, I am portrayed as the one who is evil in formulating policies that people disagree with. I consider myself a casualty, one of the many casualties of the war on terror."

Alberto, leaving aside your disrespect for the actual casualties of the war on terror, you are not portrayed as evil because you implemented "policies people disagree with." You are portrayed as evil because you helped shape and implement policies people consider illegal. You're lucky we have a feckless and almost equally guilty Congress, otherwise you'd be in jail. If the United States ever finds its footing and becomes a country of laws again, I hope to heck one day you, and your buddy Dick, will be swapping war stories behind the same set of iron bars.

Think Progress has more.
