I Don't Recall, I don't Recall

During the morning session of his testimony, AG Alberto Gonzales stated he didn't recall 55 times while being questioned. Other Bush officials who have been brought before congress recently apparently have the same memory problems. My favorite time this morning was when Gonzales was reminded that Patrick Fitzgerald was given a mediocre rating and that Gonzales' chief deputy Kyle Sampson suggested that Fitzgerald be fired along with the others. This firing would have taken place during the middle of the Plame investigation.

For Alberto Gonzales to claim he can't recall if he had discussions about firing the most prominent US attorney in the country in the heat of the most talked about federal prosecution in the country is incredulous. Let's take him at his word 55 times. His memory is obviously too poor to be able to do his job.
