If Cheney wanted to punish Wilson through his wife, he had no need to do so publicly. No need at all. As administrative officer she could be fired, yes fired, through normal channels. No need to risk any public outcry, deserved or not.
I am very glad that Tom McGuire, Clarice Feldman et al are on the case. I don't have enough time in the day (or perhaps my lifetime) to keep track of all the relevant details and motivations/counter-motivations of all the prinicples and legal procedure etc., etc. It feels like the Rubic's cube (another thing I was never any good at) of politics. Every time I feel I have some semblence of what is going on, I see there are a million little details I don't know about. What I do know is that Joe Wilson is a horse's hinie and that his op-ed was the major misrepresentation in this case and that after spending the equivalent of the GDP of several smallish countries, the prosecution isn't prosecuting anyone for disclosing the identity of a covert operative but for giving false statements to authorities, possibly by being goaded into it so the prosecution would have something to show for its effort. It also appears that Tim Russert is too clever by half.
Odd, this doesn't look like "this thing".I've been led astray.
Remember the guy who started all the signage comments at baseball games? Back in the sixties for the Mets.I want to follow russert around from now on and I will carry various signs and confront him.Just simple stuff likeMemory any better, Russ?Timmy protects sources? FBI knows better.What did Andrea tell you?I can't do any phrases right. Would be a good exercise to give HitandRun at JOM!
Then take a look at this post over at Big Lizards:http://biglizards.net/blog/archives/2007/02/parsing_pelosi.htmlSeeing how Pelosi cozies up to a Democratic President versus her attacking a Republican President regarding Iran.I don't blame Bush for taking the position taken regarding Iran because he knows that the MSM will attack him for it.Also, read Big Lizard's post about Murtha's resolution:http://biglizards.net/blog/archives/2007/02/not_afraid_were.htmlPlus the surge happening faster than expected (but let's see how this holds in long term):http://biglizards.net/blog/archives/2007/02/iraq_security_c.html
