Just go read.
P.S. Hey, Jinx, look! Someone getting a blowjob. The horror, the horror ...
AFTERSNARK: From the NY Daily News article, you have to love this bit:
"Karl is fighting for his life," the official added, "but anything he did was done to help George W. Bush. The President knows that and appreciates that."
Sure, he committed treason, exposed a covert operative and jeopardized the national security of the country, then tried to cover it all up afterwards. But, hey, his heart was in the right place. That's gotta count for something, right?
BONUS TRACK: Regarding this general theme from that same article:
An angry President Bush rebuked chief political guru Karl Rove two years ago for his role in the Valerie Plame affair, sources told the Daily News.
I can't wait to read the transcript of the next White House press gaggle to see whether the press corps rips Li'l Scottie a new one over his having lied to them for two years. Will this be the day that the few journalists left in that pack of swine finally storm the stage and beat McClellan bloody for being such a dick?
GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE: Over here, John finishes a recent post with the suggestion, "The White House press corps needs to demand a specific date."
No shit, they do. It remains to be seen whether those so-called journalists actually take the time to dig into what's been published already and frame some serious, specific, non-dodgeable questions, or whether they blow it all off and ask something mind-numbingly stupid like, "Scott, recent news reports claim that Karl Rove told the president back in 2003 that he was involved in the leak. Care to comment on that?"
