Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition

But now we have torture advocate, Alberto Gonzales, as attorney general. And we thought John Ashcroft was appalling.

From a diary on Daily KOS:

Alberto Gonzales grew up poor and Hispanic, just like millions of other Americans we normally wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole. But through hard work, intellect, and by attaching himself remora-like to a wealthy and intellectually lazy man, he has been lifted to the highest positions of trust in our nation, and is now living every Republican's dream: helping to execute people whose lawyers slept through their trials; reinterpreting the Constitution to allow monarchist powers; and helping to set up offshore prison camps for the torture of foreign nationals.
