Rightists to Bush: Dump 'Berto

Under the banner of the American Freedom Agenda, a bunch of influential conservatives is telling President Bush that he should fire Attorney General Alberto Gonzales "for the good of the country."

The group's letter to Bush says Gonzales "has presided over an unprecedented crippling of the Constitution's time-honored checks and balances...has brought rule of law into disrepute, and debased honesty as the coin of the realm."

Gonzales is scheduled to testify tomorrow before the Senate Judiciary Committee in its investigation of the Bush administration's firing of eight federal prosecutors.
UPDATE: Gonzales' appearance before the Senate committee has been postponed until Thursday because of the Virginia Tech shootings.
