SHOCKEROO EXTRAORDINAIRE! SURELY THEY JEST!



Mag Names Gonzales ‘Lawyer of the Year’

It’s not entirely clear what the criteria are for the American Bar Association Journal’s Lawyer of the Year honor, but editors have named former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as this year’s winner—and, perhaps even more curiously, they’ve already picked Gonzales’ replacement, Attorney General Michael Mukasey, as their winner for the year 2008.

Did you hear Olbermann's take on this? That TIME magazine had named Hitler and Stalin as man of the year?

Birds of a feather?

Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales no longer ABA 'Lawyer of the Year'

:shock: I wish Congress would listen to the American public like this mag did.., although I think they could have found a better "newsmaker."


On Friday, Editor and Publisher of the American Bar Association Journal Edward Adams released a statement saying that fallen Bush Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, previously named "Lawyer of the Year," will now be known as "Newsmaker of the Year."

"The Journal regrets that we did not make this theme clear," clarifying that the Journal article in question meant to highlight Gonzales' status as a "newsmaker," and their story on him will remain unchanged otherwise.

"We appreciate the feedback we've received," says Adams, "and we're acting on it."

unbelievable.

and olbermann had pretty much the best perspective take of this with the hitler/stalin references.

doesn't lend much credibility to the publisher of the mag. i'd bet that sales woulsd take a severe dip unless they figure that thier primary customers are the 15%ers who worship the bush/cheney cabal.
