Ashcroft: Gone!

Yep... John Ashcroft is resigning from his attorney general post.

Honestly, that makes Bush's re-election just a little easier to deal with, because I don't think anyone in the Bush administration is a bigger asshole. That guy had to go a long time ago. His push to hold American citizens without trial under the Patriot Act, not to mention his fight against porn and free speech, made him the most dangerous dick in Washington.

Wasn't he the biggest backer of the Patriot Act? Maybe his replacement will talk some sense into Bush.

If you buy into the REAL hardcore left conspiracy theorists, though, Ashcroft leaving the AG post ISN'T a good thing.

Think "Supreme Court Justice Ashcroft".

Now *THAT* scares me. It won't happen, but the mere thought of it is more horrifying than The Grudge, The Ring, and Seven all rolled into one. (Don't ask me, those are the titles that came to mind ;) )
