White House does not take responsibility for Kerik fiasco 

Wait, that's a headline?! "Sun slated to appear in East"...

Anyhow, here's a juicy little detail on the fiasco from WaPo:

In the vetting process, which was conducted by the office of White House counsel Alberto R. Gonzales...

So, the guy that screwed up Kerik is none other than Bush's nominee for Attorney General! Sweet!
...Kerik also never mentioned that a New Jersey judge had issued a warrant for his arrest in 1998 over a civil dispute over unpaid bills, the sources said. The existence of the dispute was first reported by Newsweek Friday night.

It is unclear why White House lawyers could not uncover [the outstanding arrest] warrant that Newsweek discovered after a few days of research....

Actually, I think it's quite clear. We're going to have to lift ol' Judy's sobriquet and apply it to Al: Alberto "Kneepads" Gonzales. After all, Gonzales got where he is by enabling—and I mean enabling in the classic recovery movement sense here—Inerrant Boy to do exactly what he wants. Prime example: The Texas Clemency memos. Second prime example: The memo saying the President has the inherent authority to set aside the law. And many, many more. (See back).

NOTE Great news! I think we have our first troll in a good long while on this post. They must be concerned Gonzales will be tainted. Beer cooler time again for GOP Gaulieters!
