'Bucket of concrete'

I feel just terrible about what has happened to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. His memory has become so defective that he had to plead an inability of recollection 45 times before the lunch break on his first day of testimony. His brain must be like a bucket of concrete, hardening by the minute.

What's the point of having meetings if you can't remember them afterward? What is it about working for President Bush that makes all of his underlings suffer memory loss?

Perhaps we should make an impervious short-term memory a prerequisite for public service.
