Meaningless Political Acts

Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Charles Schumer (D-NY) have called on the Senate to hold a no-confidence vote on Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, hoping it will prompt Gonzales to resign. The White House quickly derided the vote, calling it “nothing more than a meaningless political act.” And aWol knows a thing or two about Meaningless Political Acts:

He's made them in Jackson Square, New Orleans;

in "Iraq" with a fake turkey;

and onboard an aircraft carrier.

At least six Senate Republicans have now called on Gonzales to resign. Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA) on Sunday said he believes support for the no confidence vote is “very substantial,” and that if Gonzales “sees that coming, that he would prefer to avoid that kind of an historical black mark.”
