National Review agrees AG Gonzales should pack up

Though I have only barely been following the US Attorney purge story, I suggested here last week that it was time for new leaders at the Justice Department.  I am thus pleased to see from this editorial that the National Review has joined the call for AG Gonzales to resign.  Here are snippets from the editorial:

While we defended [Gonzales] from some of the outlandish charges made during his confirmation hearings, we have never seen evidence that he has a fine legal mind, good judgment, or managerial ability. Nor has his conduct at any stage of this controversy gained our confidence. 

His claim not to have been involved in the firings suggests that he was either deceptive or inexcusably detached from the operations of his own department.... 

He cannot defend the administration and its policies even when they deserve defense.  Alberto Gonzales should resign.  The Justice Department needs a fresh start.

adding: don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out. And we're suspending your passport. Don't make any long-term travel plans, we may need to see you some day soon.

I think he's clearly a flight risk.

I have to say, this Sentencing Blog is begining to look a lot like Page 6 of the NY Post! Can't we stick to the real purpose of this blog: to educate on sentencing issues.
