Gonzales has been one of the most controversial figures in US politics over the past few years. His role was summed up neatly on Political Gateway: “Gonzales has been under fire for his role in the treatment of "war on terror" detainees, domestic surveillance, and has been accused of lying to lawmakers over the sackings of federal prosecutors last year”.
Bush has maintained his support for Gonzales, claiming he was merely a victim of a Democrat smear campaign. Ultimately the pressure told and the AG walked, just weeks after Karl Rove did the same.

Cork hurlers were the ones making all the headlines early this summer but now it's the footballers who have booked their place in the All-Ireland final for the first time since 1999. The other semi-final will be played next weekend but whatever the outcome it promises to be a great final on the third Sunday in September.
Meath entered the game as strong favourites and many - this blogger included - had written off Cork's chances following the loss of star forward James Masters to a broken jaw. How glad I am to say I was wrong!
Cadbury have announced that the Wispa for a "would be reintroduced for an unspecified limited period, but it could make an indefinite return if it proves to be a hit with chocolate lovers." Oh it will!
We may even see the return of the Wispa Gold!

Peter O'Toole to Kristin Scott Thomas
It caught my attention as I had recently seen ads for the 2007 remake with Sean Bean in the lead role. Watching it I could not fathom why anyone would want to make another version, aside form the obvious reason of money. Rutger Hauer is sublime in his role as the devious, unflinching and brutal bad guy. I like Bean as an actor and he is as good a likeness as you would hope for, but this remake is destined to fall short of the original.
