Happy Fitznukkah, Everybody!

That's right -- it isn't a one-day holiday like Fitzmas. This could go on and on. One day a great gift like Libby, the next day a pair of socks (Ari Fleischer), the next day, who knows: maybe an Xbox 360 (Karl Rove)! Maybe this can be dragged out until the 2006 midterms.

Anyway. Boy, did he lie! Wow. That. Is lying. Hoo boy.

And how about Rove telling the press he was going to have a great Friday and a great weekend? They can't even not lie about what kind of weekend they're going to have.

The only disappointment was the lack of a "treason" indictment. Looks like thirty years is the most Scooter will get. But who knows? He might get squeezed and end up ratting out the other guys, and get only eight to twelve.

It occurs to me that all of this may be about covering up the phony rationale for the march to war. One of you enterprising "bloggers" should look into that. Here's a clue: At one point, Cheney told Tim Russert, "there's no doubt that Saddam has reconstituted his nuclear program." If that statement could be proven false, that might provide the motive for smearing Joe Wilson and his wife, Valerie Flame.
