No Confidence BS

The Dems failed to get their "No Confidence" vote through. Not that our government has any such thing, but hey why not piss away more time when you have real work to do. God knows taking that immigration bill off the floor to make way for this was a reasonable step toward solving issues of importance.
The Senate yesterday rejected a bid to conduct a vote of no confidence in Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, as Republicans declined to defend the embattled presidential confidant but rejected the effort as a "political stunt."

On a 53-to-38 roll call, Democrats fell seven votes short of the 60 needed to invoke cloture and begin the debate on a nonbinding resolution condemning Gonzales. Seven Republicans broke with the administration and refused to support the attorney general.

Democrats had hoped their one-sentence resolution would be a step toward forcing Gonzales, under siege for the firings of nine US attorneys last year, to resign.
As political stunts go the GOP hasn't any right to be throwing stones, but in truth this is even more moronic than most of the recent GOP political games.

And if Gonzales is so bad why don't they impeach him? Unless, of course, they have nothing above political games and speeches to add as evidence of wrong doing.
