2nd in Charge McNulty is McGone

Who's sorry now?
Oh jeez. McNulty is getting out of the line of fire of Rove? Sure sounds like it.

Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty said Monday he will resign, becoming the highest-ranking Bush administration casualty in the furor over the firing of U.S. attorneys...

The aides spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk publicly about McNulty's decision. McNulty also irked Gonzales by testifying in February that at least one of the fired prosecutors was ordered to make way for a protege of Karl Rove, President Bush's chief political adviser. Gonzales, who has resisted lawmakers' calls to resign, maintains the firings were proper, and rooted in the prosecurtors' lackluster performances.
