Gonzales Testimony Postponed for Propaganda Purposes

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick "Leaky" Leahy has postponed the Attorney General's testimony on the firings of eight Federal Prosecutors (more than one hundred fewer than Clinton fired), which was scheduled for tomorrow:
Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy made the decision Monday to postpone the long-awaited hearing that has been considered Gonzales' last chance to quiet a controversy that has prompted calls in both parties for his resignation.

Leahy said the hearing had been rescheduled for Thursday. He said he made the decision after conferring with Gonzales and the committee's senior Republican, Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania. "All three of us agree," he said.
Leahy wants to make sure that news coverage of the Virginia Tech tragedy doesn't disrupt full play for his carefully orchestrated political hit job over the firings.

Lunatic fringe accusations that the Bush Administration engineered the shootings to take the heat off Gonzales in ten...nine...eight...
