Alberto Gonzales Just Resigned

Wow. I really thought he was going to just hang in there forever. NYT says he is gone:
Mr. Gonzales, who had rebuffed calls for his resignation, submitted his to President Bush by telephone on Friday, the official said. His decision was not announced immediately announced, the official added, until after the president invited him and his wife to lunch at his ranch near here.

Mr. Bush has not yet chosen a replacement but will not leave the position open long, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the resignation had not yet been made public...

The official who disclosed the resignation today said that the decision was Mr. Gonzales’s and that the president accepted it grudgingly.
Bush is f--ked.
