WakeUp on Rove

* check the posters at malkins place. she is a freak.

* billmon:
"The campaign against Kos, which I'd originally dismissed as just another pissy TNR vendetta, is starting to look more and more like a coordinated effort: a Swiftboat operation. At the very least, it's snowballing into a more systematic media attack on Left Blogistan, which makes it my fight as well as Kos's...
Whether the grown ups (Peretz, Lieberman, Hillary) actually set the Swiftboat in motion, or just watched approvingly ("Who shall rid us of this meddlesome blogger?") as their hatchet boys did what comes natural, is almost irrelevant. The important thing to understand is that we have reached the point where the Dinos and their media allies are willing to use Rovian tactics against anyone who challenges their entrenched position"

* WakeUp on Rove (ewwwwwwwwww):
"You don't have to LIKE the result or AGREE with it to simply accept the reality it is the result. When one scenario makes total sense and is completely consistent with all know facts it is not wise to reject in favor of a scenario thgat makes no sense and is completely inconsistent with all known facts.

That Rove has not been indicted and it is understood he will tell what Fitzgerald considers to be the truth if and when asked without a formal immunity agreement accounts for all known facts (Rove could still be charged if he "double-crosses" fitzgerald and the lack of an indictment DOES NOT CLEAR HIM IN THAT SENSE) and requires no flights of fancy into illogical conspiracy theories where the details would be contrary to the interests of both Rove and Fitzgerald AND INVOLVE ACTIONS AND PROCEDURES THAT SIMPLY DEFY ALL LOGIC."
* don in the comments:
"I think Gandelman put it best:
It provides a useful tip to travel agents arranging travel for Mr. Limbaugh:
Never put Rush Limbaugh in a room with a bed under a low ceiling fan."
which is kinda funny - although i suspect that limbaugh would have to lose half his belly before his weenie was ever in jeopardy.

I dunno... I kinda thought this one from Riehl kinda captured Rover in an accurate light...

With or without an indictment against Rove, the Court could still have imposed immunity on him so he would not take the 5th in the Libby case.

Since Fitz was just in court on June 12th and Luskin's announcement came on June 13th, one day after Fitz was in court, telling Judge Walton who he planned to call to testify, Luskin's announcement could very well be as a result of that hearing and the imminent testimony of rove. Fitz could have filed some interrogatories for Rove to answer under oath in 15 days.

We'll know what the subject of the June 12th hearing was when Fitz updates his website and incloudes his pleadings and exhibits for all to read for themself.
