'security moms' focussed on security in 06

* this appears to be the comment that triggered (in part) the latest questions about whether Rove was indicted, or the GJ asked Fitz to indict Rover etc:
"I know a lawyer who represents one of the witnesses who testified, and he was CERTAIN that the GJ had voted to indict.
All he could say was that it was based on what he had been told by Fitz's office. Perhaps that the client could expect to testify at a trial. Don't know for sure."

* American Conservative:
"GOP Must Go: The meaning of this election will be interpreted in one of two ways: the American people endorsed the Bush presidency or they did what they could to repudiate it. Such an interpretation will be simplistic, even unfairly so. Nevertheless, the fact that will matter is the raw number of Republicans and Democrats elected to the House and Senate.
Faced on Sept. 11, 2001 with a great challenge, President Bush made little effort to understand who had attacked us and why—thus ignoring the prerequisite for crafting an effective response. He seemingly did not want to find out, and he had staffed his national-security team with people who either did not want to know or were committed to a prefabricated answer.
On Nov. 7, the world will be watching as we go to the polls, seeking to ascertain whether the American people have the wisdom to try to correct a disastrous course. Posterity will note too if their collective decision is one that captured the attention of historians—that of a people voting, again and again, to endorse a leader taking a country in a catastrophic direction. The choice is in our hands."

* the other scott horton:
"I fear for my country at this time. I fear for all of us and our world. Many of you may disagree with me. But I ask all to weigh this vote with care. This vote may be your last."

* keith olbermann is at the fdl salon. comment of the day. In response to being asked "Keith, did Ann Coulter have that Adam’s Apple at Cornell?" - KO sez:
"I don’t know. He was several years after me there."

* joe wilson is hanging out in keith's fdl post too. someone asked him
"Judging from the events as they transpired, now in hindsight as you’ve found out more concerning the exposure of her as a covert asset, are you more likely to believe the administration was exacting payback from you for your wife?

Was the exposure of Brewster Jennings and Associates as much responsible for the CIA seeking an investigation as Mrs, wilson?"
Wilson replied:
"I still believe the compromise of Valerie’s identity was a consequence of their anger at me and not related to her actual work. Fitz said the same thing in his indictment and filings. I love the conspiracy thinking however."
conspiracy thinking? is he deflecting? i'm sure he's heard that a thousand times.

AmCon suggesting a framing of the midterms as a referendum on the Bush Administration is semi-surprising, and directly contradicts all of the RNC's efforts. I don't expect a wingnut pile on over it but it's still interesting in itself.

"security moms' focussed on security in 06"

Ummm... as opposed to...? Probably in denial of the fact that some may also be focusing on family values...

Read through the KO salon at FDL. Interesting reading, and a pleasant surprise at Wilson's appearance. On that comment I, too, paused to wonder exactly what he meant. Deflection, subtle hinting at something, or a hat tip for thinking that'll be key to taking down this administration? Among other things, the last 6 years have been the culmination of a grand conspiracy (or conspiracies). When this is over, it'll only be after a lot of threads in the tapestry are untangled.
