With all the grim unemployment data that's been floating around, you've probably been asking yourself one question: "How is former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales holding up in this recession?" Remember, he'd been having a dickens of a time finding a new job, for some reason, after getting downsized, for some reason, from his last one.
Well, good news! Ex-AG A.G. has got himself a new gig, at Texas Tech University…
Gonzales will work to recruit minority students for the Lubbock-based college's diversity office and teach a junior-level political science seminar on "Contemporary Issues in the Executive Branch," according to a statement from Texas Tech.
"I am excited that Alberto Gonzales is bringing his experience to Texas Tech," Kent Hance, Texas Tech's chancellor, said in the statement. "His own upbringing in Houston as part of a migrant family with eight children makes him qualified to tell underrepresented Texas students that college is possible."
And, of course, he'll relate especially well to the underrepresented Texas students who dream of growing up to erode privacy, stifle free speech, expand the limits of executive privilege and trample the Geneva Convention.
At least let's hope they're underrepresented.
