Stephen Colbert took a sardonic swing at embattled Attorney General Gonzales in last night's episode of his popular Comedy Central show The Colbert Report.

"All Alberto Gonzales did was possibly lie to Congress about his involvement in the firing of U.S. Attorneys who got in the way of the president's agenda to cement a stranglehold on all branches of government," quips Colbert. "Let's not make a federal case out of it."

Gonzales' upcoming testimony before a Senate panel prompted this advice from Colbert in his popular "The Wrd" segment.
