Someone at the White House is singing...

..because ABC is breaking news on our good buddies Karl and Alberto (h/t: talkingpointsmemo):

March 15, 2007 — New unreleased e-mails from top administration officials show that the idea of firing all 93 U.S. attorneys was raised by White House adviser Karl Rove in early January 2005, indicating Rove was more involved in the plan than the White House previously acknowledged.

The e-mails also show that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales discussed the idea of firing the attorneys en masse weeks before he was confirmed as attorney general.

The e-mails directly contradict White House assertions that the notion originated with recently departed White House counsel Harriet Miers, and was her idea alone.

Wow, talk about long knives. Given the Mouse's serious right turn (see: bogus 9/11 movie that has earned someone a beatdown if I ever meet them), there's only one possible reason for the leakers to go to ABC. My guess is someone wants either Karl or Alberto out. But man, this administration is gangsta. Waits for Alberto to go all "mistakes were made", the President has "confidence in Al" and then BAM! the coup de grace'. No wonder he looked like he was about to piss himself the other day. Deliberately misleading Congress, eh? Let's see how far this goes. If Gonzales is smart, he'll resign before candlelighting tomorrow. But as MK was pointing out, resignation is not enough. INDICTMENT!
