Gonzales 'Disappointed' in His Own Conduct in DOJ Hiring - so now what?

Bush's AJ Gonzales testified under oath that he is now disappointed that he politicized the Justice Department:

... but Obama broke from past practice in not replacing Gonzales' hires. (Normally you accept the resignation of the AGs at the start of your term, appoint a bunch based mostly on merit, and then let them serve while on good behavior. Bush changed this by making ideology a specific requirement for his AGs, and then firing those who refused to conduct political investigations )

So we're stuck with not only with AGs so politicized that they now embarass Alberto Gonzales, with the ones who slipped by having been purged by Bush ...is it any wonder that the DOJ is slow to prosecute Bush Administration criminals and continue to persecute Don Siegelman?

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
