Bring me the head of Alberto Gonzalez

There's no way on this site to gauge whether anybody is reading these ramblings.

Advertisers gauge by giving something away. So, here goes.

Send me, either as a post or as an e-mail the answer to the following question:
Now that President Bush has expressed his absolute confidence in Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez and made a point out of saying he's sticking by the embattled Cabinet member no matter how thick the dust gets around the U.S. Attorney scandal, how long will it be before Gonzalez gets the boot. You know, the Don Rumsfeld seal of approval -- here's your hat, what's your hurry.

You can either pick a date or pick days, with March 23, 2007, being Day One.

The winner will get a Len'sLens T-shirt, if we ever make any.

If we don't made T-shirts, or even if we do, we'll announce the winner on the day that Alberto gets the old heave-ho, or at least the day after.

There have to be rules. If Gonzalez gets appointed to a federal judgeship at the Circuit Court of Appeals or higher, or is named ambassador to someplace about which anybody cares, then all bets are off.

If White House spokesman Tony Snow announces that Gonzalez is going hunting with the vice president, then all bets are really off.

Leaving to pursue other options, including being commissioner of the National Hockey League, counts. Leaving to spend more time with his family also counts.

Good Luck!

Oh, yes. I'm told that some of my citations are a bit obscure. My headline comes from a movie, "Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia," a wonderful 1974 cult film with Warren Oates, Gig Young and Kris Kristofferson being the only actors most people would have ever heard of. It was directed by Sam Peckinpah and is about this guy, a hooker and a bounty hunt.

My vote is 2.75 weeks. Enough time for either a new scandal to errupt, or for a veteran of both this latest Iraq war and the conditions at Walter Reed Medical Center to make news. We're not than attention-span-deprived, are we, Nation?

I say two months for two reasons [i] Bush hangs on to these guys past all reason and [ii] you are looking for evidence of readership and here I am!

I'll give Gonzalez a month.
