It’s official.

US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, embroiled in a row over the sacking of eight US attorneys, has formally announced his resignation.

In a brief news conference Mr Gonzales said he had met President George W Bush on Sunday to tender his resignation, which will take effect on 17 September.

We’re looking at a recess appointment. Given that Gonzo made the last guy look competent, I can’t wait to see who Bush comes up with this time.
