Ashcroft, Evans Resign!

You might have heard it here first!

(Associated Press)
WASHINGTON — Attorney General John Ashcroft and Commerce Secretary Don Evans resigned today, the first members of President Bush's Cabinet to leave as he headed from re-election into his second term. . .
"The objective of securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror has been achieved," Ashcroft wrote in a five-page, handwritten letter to Bush."Yet I believe that the Department of Justice would be well served by new leadership and fresh inspiration," said Ashcroft, whose health problems earlier this year resulted in removal of his gall bladder.

Gall is the word, all right. Unbelievable. Enjoy the feeling of euphoria while you can-- and brace yourself for whatever kooks are on the way.
