trying to get to Dick

* kathleen:
"Bolton was involved (in Plame leak) through Fred Fleitz. Read Henry Waxman's letter to Chris Shays, dated March 1, 2005 in which he mentions this involvement and the likelihood that Bolton mislead the SFRC about having been questioned in connection with a criminal investigation.(Plame). The SFRC found out that Bolton lied to them on his questionaire.

Since he was the first person in the State dept to receive the Niger forgeries and involved through Fleitz in getting the 16 words into the State Dept Memo, he had plenty of motive and has a reputation for acting on his own and retaliating against anyone who disagrees with him. Also, according to David Wurmser and John Hannah's testimony to Fitz, Bolton is who told Cheney that Plame was undercover. Check it out."

* Larry C Johnson:
Oh. So Karl Rove got a pass? Really? Where's the letter? Seems none of the mainstream media can get their story straight. Some report there is a letter from Patrick Fitzgerald, but none have seen it. Some say there was a phone call. Really? Let's see the phone records. Others say there was a fax. Okay, where's the damn fax.

What is amazing is that Jason Leopold gets vilified and yet, when it comes to the mainstream media, everyone gives these cretins a pass. Sorry. Jason reports there is a sealed indictment. Lufkin claims otherwise. Lufkin claims to have proof but won't put it on the table.

I'm with Christy Hardin Smith at FireDogLake.com. Until Patrick Fitzgerald calls off the dogs that Porcine Ass called Rove ought to worry about who he might be getting up close and personal with in jail.

* emptywheel:
"If I had to guess, I'd say Fitzgerald has Libby conversing with Novak, possibly even has the full IIPA violation. But that he's holding off to try to get to Dick.
Or that's what I hope, anyway."

From the Fruit-not-falling-far-from-the-tree department, guess what the 'other' Cheney daughter is up to?

i'm reading the truthout article and that little voice in my head was going 'what the fuck? apart from nepotism, how in hell is she qualified?' and then i got down to:

Asked about Liz's familiarity with the Middle East, a former staffer at the Middle East Institute, a Washington D.C., think tank, says that she dabbled in the Institute's Arabic language classes. "And she'd come to our annual conference," she said. That's it. That was, however, apparently enough to get her named deputy assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs (NEA) in 2002.

i won't read anymore--i hate being proven right when it galls me to the point of screaming/drinking (and lately, over the past 5 years, most of my gut feelings--mind, w/no real facts to back them up--have turned out true). i had many MANY problems reading about Bremer and the CPA kids about two years back, especially w/the 8 or 80 billion missing $.

sorry to be so personal and not really add anything to the convo...i keep thinking 'is that it?' but there's always something worse, something nobody really talks about in corporate media, around the corner.

lol.

gut feelings = there's always something worse

that's a pretty safe bet

i've been watching liz cheney for a bit now - so i knew where she was and what she was up to.

what's really amazing is that the bushies and the cheneys and whatnot called NEPOTISM on saddam and his sons, and kim il jung, and valerie/joe wilson. they've really got a fucking cheek.

In studies of dysfunctional relationships, particularly with addicts, it's often noted that the harder the 'addictive personality' accuses their partner of something, the more likely it is that they themselves are guilty of the same transgression.

Insert Bush/coke/booze, Cheney/booze, Laura/DUI, etc joke here...

Hmm, anything in that dept. on Lynn?

gut feelings = there's always something worse

It is painfully ironic that the Decider and co. (and as lampooned by Colbert) profess to going from the gut and most often are very cooly calculating, while the thinkers among us are too often having to rely on our guts.

blogger's really nasty today, btw--i think i just posted the following so excuse me if it comes out twice:

Freud would have a field day w/this bunch. he could write 'projection soup for the rethug soul' and it'd be a bestseller.
