Anne Applebaum Nails The Gonzales Nomination 

If you do not believe me, please direct your attention to the words of the Pulitzer Prize winning author of the book Gulag. From today's column in which she referes to the abuses at the Abu Ghraib prison:

In fact, anyone who has ever wanted the United States to play a role in promoting and supporting democracy and human rights around the world -- and this includes a wide swath of the conservative movement -- ought to oppose the appointment of Alberto Gonzales, if only on the grounds that he is associated with bad legal advice that has damaged our ability to do so. Just because the president can't remember how embarrassed we all were eight months ago doesn't mean the rest of Washington, and especially the rest of the president's party, need be gripped by amnesia as well.
