Surprise, surprise

The Washington Post reports this morning that White House and Department of Justice officials began setting in motion a plan to replace at least one U.S. Attorney with a friend of Karl Rove at least five months before that attorney, Bud Cummins, who ran an office in Arkansas, was fired.

On the front page of the New York Times, we learn that new Secretary of Defense Robert Gates argued for closing the Guantanamo Bay prison shortly after taking the position last November, but was rebuffed, at the urging of Vice President Dick Cheney, by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

On Fox Morning News, White House press secretary and former Fox "journalist" Tony Snow tells an "interviewer" that, despite what every high school student learns in civics class, "Congress doesn't have any legitimate oversight responsibility on the White House."

More to come . . .
