Win/Win

Slate has taken the gonzo-meter down to 55 percent.

Waiting for Monica:

Gonzo-meters are only as good as the Gonzos they measure, and we confess that when we first launched this feature we underestimated the attorney general’s taste for public humiliation. It’s now amply clear that whatever contempt serious attorneys at the Justice Department, Republican stalwarts, and the national media feel for Alberto Gonzales is more than matched by the contempt he feels for all of them. And as the days go by and it becomes clear that the AG thinks he has won by losing, we fear we have to back down from our prediction that he will leave anytime soon.

Well, o.k. One more thing to hang around his party’s neck next year.
