Ashcroft and Evans resign!

Just announced.

Hey, I guess I half-won when we were guessing who would be the next cabinet member to resign. I guessed Evans, but for the wrong reason.

Erroneous report - just announced.

Just kidding.

I expected Ashcroft to go, but no so soon.

I guess I half-won too with (Ashcroft), but also for the wrong reason. It was NOT because "the objective of securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror has been achieved" as Ashcroft claims.

It's been suggested that Ashcroft actually wanted the President to ask him to stay. Apparently he wasn't asked to stay.

He sent the President a hand written letter on November 2 - election day. Obviously he didn't want his resignation to leak out.

Yay.

Now if Rumsfield goes I'll be marginally happy.

I got it right, but was wrong about his replacement. I believe I posted who the correct replacement will be in the Cabinet thread.

Evans was also known to be a certainty to leave. He wants to go back to Texas.


adding:

My pick back then, Mr. Comey, has had his name resurface today as a potential replacement. I still am confident though that the next AG will be the first African-American to ever hold the post.

It is appearing more and more that Mr. Rumsfeld will remain.

I believe he will remain until a couple of operations are completed in Iraq.

BTW: Just what are the complaints that folks on this forum have about Don Rumsfeld?

Hopefully, Bush will do the right thing and not appoint another holy roller.

Ashcroft is a Pentecostal?

Just like everything else around here, accuracy is just a detail. It's the belief that counts!

I thought I'd use a new term rather than my favorite. Sorry if I'm not up on the various flavors of nuttiness. Pentawho?

No problem! I knew that you're were just shooting your mouth off without knowing what in the hell you were talking about.

Ain't that the truth. Anyway, lets hope Bush doesn't appoint another Jesus freak.

What brand of nuttiness are the guys with the snakes?
