Just Another Unemployed Mexican

Alberto R. Gonzales, like many others recently unemployed, has discovered how difficult it can be to find a new job. Mr. Gonzales, the former attorney general, who was forced to resign last year, has been unable to interest law firms in adding his name to their roster, Washington lawyers and his associates said in recent interviews. NY Times

Best headline: “Alberto Gonzales: Will Lie for Food

Even John Mitchell, Nixon’s abominable AG, found work — after his jail term. As did Miami’s own Jack Reno. But little Bertie so thoroughly disgraced himself with his weasly demeanor and baldfaced fabrications that even the legal profession can’t stomach the thought of his association with them.

“It’s not that any law firm wouldn’t highly prize an unprincipled lickspittle with no conscience or sense of professional ethics,” explaines one attorney. “Hell — those are the qualities the major players look for. His problem is, he’s just such a rotten actor. Even when he tells the truth — not that there are any witnesses to that event — it looks like he’s covering something up. He couldn’t sell a donut to a cop without arousing suspicion.”

“Can he cut lawns?” asks another. “Maybe when Bush retires to Texas he’ll hire him again.”

The real problem, of course, is that he’s short. And did anybody else notice an eerie resemblance to local gusano, Marlins President Davey Samson?

    Your snarky cracks about lawyers….well, they’re about right at a certain level. fact is, to get to the very top, it helps to be a shameless backstabbing sneak. Women like that, too!

    Add to the list of miscreant barristers who found work after less than honorable public service: John Yoo, author of the “Torture is Constitutionally protected Behavior — And Fun, Too!” memo the Bushters used to justify waterboarding and “aggressive” interrogation techniques. He teaches law at Boat Hall, Berkeley, of all places.
