Who Was the Worst Attorney General in Recent Years?


As Gonzo deserts the sinking ship that is the SS Bush Second Term, there's no question that he sucked as attorney general.

But was he in fact worse than Constitution-shredder and recidivist barbershop quarteter John Ashcroft (whose main qualification for the gig was losing to a dead man in an election)?

Or Constitution-shredder and recidivist child abuser Janet Reno (whose main qualification for the gig was that she never paid a nanny under the table)?

Discuss. And ponder the thought that whatever comes next might actually be worse.
