What good luck!

Ashcroft leaves.

What bad luck!

Bush says, "fuck you, polar bears, I'm running out of oil-rich countries to invade!"

Of course, the good luck is still pretty annoying, as the departing Ashcroft claims that "the objective of securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror has been achieved." An excuse which rather contradicts Bush's entire election campaign, but whatever. Also, there are rumours that he's leaving because he's going to be the next US Supreme Court judge, which is rather disturbing. So, possibly no good news at all then. Sigh. Go read some Sweet Valley books to cheer yourself up.

Dumb ass Alaska went Bush in the election. I was thinking of this while watching the patchwork map on election night. Four years from now, I wonder how they'll feel?

My kingdom for a pretzel. *cries*

If Ashcroft becomes Supreme Court *cough*hooker*cough* Justice, I will have to talk to Shagmuffin about seriously leaving the country.

I don't know whether there'd be any rules against an Attorney General becoming a SCJ, but for the sake of all my American friends, I hope there are...

A friend of mine who works for a Texas senator (unfortunately Republican) says that even with a Republican Congress it would be very hard to get Ashcroft through the selection process because he pissed off too many Congressmen, even in his own party, while AG. Sadly, I have little faith in this.
