In response to mounting pressure from both sides of the political spectrum, President Bush has asked Alberto Gonzales to step down as Attorney General.
"As far as I'm concerned, Fredo didn't do anything wrong," said Bush. "But to appease all you cry babies, I have asked him to gather all his loopholes and to be on his way."
It is said that Bush has subsequently appointed Gonzales to replace Paul Wolfowitz as President of the World Bank. "I wanted someone who has a passion for lifting people out of poverty to lead this poverty-fighting institution, and I know Fredo is up to the task. He grew up a Mexican in San Antonio, so he knows a thing or two about subsisting on beans. And he's not shy about letting 'em rip, I might add," he said with self amusement.
It is purported that the President has already appointed a successor to Gonzales' old position and that Paul Wolfowitz will be the next Attorney General.
