Bush's Payoff to Yes-Men
The New York Times has an editorial today, "Their Master's Voice" about Bush's loyalty to his yes-men.
It’s a familiar pattern: Mr. Bush sticks by his most trusted aides no matter how evident it is — even to the Republican Congressional chorus — that they are guilty of incompetence, bad judgment, malfeasance or all three. (George Tenet, the director of central intelligence; Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld; and the Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers spring to mind.)
And, of course, Alberto Gonzales.
