That law degree is... quaint.

Via Liliana Segura and LuLu, it seems Alberto Gonzales, the former US Attorney General who never met a law he couldn't just ignore, is still unemployed after having slithered out of the Bush bunker a half a year ago.

Maybe this is a sign of things to come. Even John Ashcroft, that great defender of liberty...
Following his tenure as attorney general in post-9/11 America -- a time that brought us the Patriot Act and saw career lawyers at the DoJ replaced by cronies and conservative Christians -- he founded his own consulting firm, and was swiftly hired as "distinguished professor of law and government" by Regent University, the pretend- (but politically influential) law school founded by Pat Robertson.
What do you think of Bush's legacy now, Gonzo?

Give us another smirk and (one more time!), I can't recall.

Since, apparently, that Harvard law degree is just a piece of paper, you might have to consider a new career path. Start practicing: Would you like fries with that?
