I am not "involved" in writing this blog post

Are you sitting down? Here's a real shocker for you...Alberto Gonzales caught stretching the truth:
"Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales met with senior aides on Nov. 27 to review a plan to fire a group of U.S. attorneys, according to documents released last night, a disclosure that contradicts Gonzales's previous statement that he was not involved in 'any discussions' about the dismissals.
You see, it depends on what the meaning of the word "involved" is...:) I'm sure Gonzales meant it in exactly the same way that it was previously meant when Karl Rove was said not to be involved in the outing of Valerie Plame.

Little Kyle Sampson, Gonzales' ex-deputy is going to be testifying next week...I'm sure he'll shed some light on Gonzales' degree of involvement. And Rove's. Should be mighty interesting. If I'm not mistaken, Sampson will be one of the first from this administration to testify publicly on the inner workings of the White House.

And isn't it amazing how emails disclosing such information suddenly appear on the heels of the Justice Department learning that Sampson will indeed testify...
