Are you SURE you want to keep lying?

WASHINGTON - The top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee is advising — for now — against a perjury investigation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales over his apparent misstatements about warrantless spying.

Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., said he wanted to wait at least until a briefing Monday by the Bush administration on classified spy programs that could help him decide whether Gonzales lied to Congress.

"Let's give him a chance," Specter said Sunday. "What we want to do is find out what the facts are."

So when a Republican Attorney General lies to Congress, it's "Let's give him a chance to correct that."

If it was a Democrat, it would be "Hang him."
