Since the August recess of Congress is nearly upon us - with its chance for Bush to do a recess appointment of someone to replace Gonzo (after Alberto decides his family needs more attention) without having a confirmation hearing in the Senate - I'd be up for a little side-bet on whether Bush takes that opportunity or not.

I'll take the 'won't replace' side, since I don't think Bush could find someone who would be as cravenly submissive as Gonzo and not provoke a mass protest at DoJ.

Besides, I think Bush/Cheney like doing a 'fuck yourself' to the Congress that they can easily get away with.
