It is raining frogs and salamanders outside and inside, we laugh as we read about Karl appearing before the Grand Jury to answer quite a few questions. From the NYT:
President Bush's chief political adviser, Karl Rove, testified at length today in his fourth appearance before the federal grand jury investigating the disclosure of a C.I.A. operative's name.The photo shows him looking like the Queen of England seeing Diana's ghost.
Mr. Rove emerged from the federal courthouse here shortly after 1 p.m. and was seen smiling slightly as he got into a gray car and was driven away. He had been in the building more than four hours, although it was not known whether he was in front of the jury the entire time.
Mr. Rove's lawyer, Robert D. Luskin, told reporters that Mr. Fitzgerald "has not advised Mr. Rove that he is a target of the investigation and affirmed that he has made no decision concerning charges." Mr. Luskin went on to say that the prosecutor "has indicated that he does not anticipate the need for Mr. Rove's further cooperation."That is a tart way of saying, "your ass is grass."
Mr. McClellan said any notion that the White House was in turmoil was unfounded. He said, as he has before, that President Bush and his aides were too busy to be distracted, and that they never forget that their mission is to "carry out the work of the American people."Busy little bees running from one flood to another, in between running to Uncle Hu in China, whimpering and then running back and forth between Congress and the Religious Bigot Right, gnashing teeth and chewing on the scenery. No, they are not in turmoil, they are simply moving at the speed of light trying to stay ahead of cascading events.
Sort of like running down the WTC staircase after 10am, 9/11/1.
As usual, the left wing blogsphere carries much much better news than the MSM. Like this story! From Rawstory.com:
There’s a feeling of unease at the Times.La Judith D'Arc, she is going to be locked outside by her fellow fighters and carried off by the meanies. Well, she spilled the beans, spilled her guts and is crying over spilt milk and none of this shows up in the NYT except bleatings about how persecuted she is for engaging in conspiracies. How dare people hold her responsible for the tales she told!
Veteran New York Times reporter Judith Miller’s one-woman crusade to protect her White House source in a CIA leak inquiry has stirred passions among Times staffers not seen since the Jayson Blair scandal, when the unsuspecting paper ran dozens of fictionalized articles.
Conversations with nearly a dozen Times reporters revealed a scarred landscape of discontent. Few reporters were willing to go on the record, but none who spoke with RAW STORY said they supported Miller. Many voiced worries that the paper’s editor, Bill Keller, was sacrificing his own integrity to protect her.
Well, Judith, meet Tokyo Rose. She went to prison for the same sort of stuff, dearlie.
Onwards and downwards!
