How Not To Treat The Fall Guy

Gonzo's fall guy Sampson getting every consideration:

Good eye, or good ear, from TPM Reader JB. Apparently, the White House and Alberto Gonzales are so miffed with Kyle Sampson for doing the whole Attorney Purge on his own that they're letting him stay on the job -- from which he supposedly resigned on Monday -- indefinitely as he "goes job hunting."

Does Gonzo's denial still pass the red face test? Did it ever? For the record, the way to properly label someone a fall guy is to throw him out immediately and then, when things quiet down, take care of him/her in a discreet manner.
