In case you weren't sure that U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez was a pandering lackey, you might want to read this article in the Seattle Times where they say he is giving a talk sponsored by the evil liars at The Discovery Institute, the group that promotes the religion of Intelligent Design. Gonzalez won't be speaking on religious or scientific matters (he'll discussing "efforts to protect intellectual property and combat cybercrime", which I find richly ironic given both his history and that of the DI). Still, the DI is a slimy group of liars, and having them sponsor this talk doesn't move Gonzalez up in my book at all. I'd even say it moves him down a notch, but he's already so low he could walk under snake's belly without having to duck.
