US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales resigns

I interrupt my brief semi-hiatus to mark this happy day - the scandal-prone and ineffective drone, Alberto Gonzales, has at long last resigned (New York Times). As yet there is no official reason for his resignation; no doubt the Administration will come up with some story to feed to the US press and public, but I don't think too many, even amongst Republican loyalists, will be fooled into thinking this is anything other than a further crushing below to the already depleted credibility of President George W Bush.

Other US reports (thru Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report):
The Politico
CNN Political Ticker - suggesting Michael Chertoff may replace Gonzales
Houston Chronicle - reactions from both sides of the political divide
Barack Obama - one of the Democratic Presidential hopefuls.
