Have you ever wondered how intelligent conservatives could stand having John Ashcroft as Attorney General?
One possible answer — one tht I hadn’t considered — is that they can’t. I was just told by a smart, well-plugged-in Washington conservative that there is to be a meeting next month where he and “others of my ilk” will discuss a candidate to replace Ashcroft. My source reports that the President is “very disappointed” with his Attorney General, and that the White House Counsel’s office regards him as “a boob.”
