Liar, liar, pants on fire

So we learn this morning that Alberto Gonzales knew more about the firings of the seven U.S. attorneys fired last December that he has previously admitted. Gonzales said he wasn't involved in any discussion of their firings; records released last night show that he was. Does that mean he's lying? Or is this just the Democrats, as the Decider accused them this morning in his weekly radio address, playing "partisan politics?"

And we also learn that the former No. 2 ranking official at the Department of Interior has just pled guilty to lying about his relationship with convicted Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

Just what the hell is the deal with Robert Novak? After Valerie Plame Wilson testified that she was a covert CIA officer, Novak writes a column saying that she was not. Huh? Timothy Noah at Slate reminds Novak that (1) Wilson was a covert CIA officer and (2) he blew her identity when he reported that status in July 2003 column.

Bad, and getting worse . . . or better, depending upon your view.
