In the wake of the sad, sad news that Alberto Gonzales will be resigning, inevitably the speculation will begin about what appalling choice Bush will put forward, secure in the knowledge that several Democratic Senators can be counted to abdicate their responsibilities. The odds are as follows:
- Michael Chertoff: 5-1.
- Michael Brown: 4-1.
- Hugh Hewitt: 10-1.
- Robert H. Bork: 8-1. (HT: MJD.)
- Charles Colson: 15-1.
- Oliver North: 12-1.
- Vote Fraud Fraud pioneer Jeff Sessions: 7-1.
- Paul Wolfowitz: 8-1.
- Scooter Libby: 10-1.
- John Yoo: 3-1.
- The mummified corpse of Augusto Pinochet: 2-1.
Over/under for Democratic votes on all candidates starts at 5…
…my most glaring omissions so far: Ken Starr, Ed Meese, and Rick Santorum.
