two points of shame for the bush administration today

The first point of shame - UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon has admitted that the proposal at the Bali climate change conference for developed countries to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 25-40% by 2020 will fail. That's because the de facto Bush Administration's negotiating team has refused to go along with any targets. This isn't a surprise - it is just the prolongation to what will I'm sure be a full eight years of obstructionism by the Bushites.

And on the other hand, former Bush attorney general Alberto the Torturer Gonzales was named "Lawyer of the Year" by the ABA Journal. One ABA Journal official noted that Time Magazine's "Man of the Year" choices have included such lovely figures as Hitler and Stalin, so it isn't necessarily a compliment to identify Gonzales as the lawyer "who has had the most effect in the world of lawyers this year."

Congratulations Alberto. To celebrate, how about writing a memo justifying pulling legs off of flies?
