Wolfgang von Skeptik. . .

. . .checks in with a cautionary post on the Bush administration's naming of Alberto Gonzales to replace outgoing Attorney General John Ashcroft.

"The Gonzales appointment – which was applauded by one of America’s leading anti-gun zealots, Sen. Charles Schumer (D., NY) – is a disconcerting signal in at least three ways. First, it is a slap in the face to the National Rifle Association and to Second Amendment advocates in general, absolute proof the always-bogus Bush/gunowner honeymoon is forever ended. Second, the appointment is an important concession to Hispanics, 71 percent of whom are said to favor 'gun control,' though the survey-findings that make this claim. . .leave the precise meaning of 'gun control' undefined."

Also, a hat-tip to Wolfgang for introducing me to a new epithet to hurl at Bill Maher -- "titiot". Thanks for setting me straight, Wolfie!
