Libby trial summarized

oldschool summarized the Libby trial for me:
Libby trial summarized:

1. Fitz puts up several people who say that Libby lied like a sum-bitch.

2. Fitz plays several hours of tape of Libby's GJ testimony, in which he quite obviouslyt lies like a sum-bitch.

3. Defense puts up several people who say that Libby never *leaked* to them (defense still being unaware that this is not a leak case).

4. Johyn Hannah testifies, in a poor-man's memory defense, that Libby was such a busy man, he was practically running the entire U.S. Govt all by himself.

5. Fitz to Hannah: If Libby was that busy, to take a two-hour breakfast meeting (with JudyJudyJudy) must have been about something *very* important, right?

6. Defense - "Aw fuck it, the defense rests."

7. Closing arguments coming this Tuesday.

That's about it, I think.

Recent clues point to Abbott and Costello as original architects of Plame Leak.
Grand Jury testimony of Scooter Libby, former Chief of Staff of the United States (COSTUS) for the Vice President, leaked by Rove-ing reporter (humor).

It is posted at: Libby Knows who Leaked First

We can only hope that Fitz doesn't fizzle.
I think Mr. Fitzgerald's motto should be: "If you do a white collar crime then you will serve blue collar time." Look where he lodged Judith Miller. A few months in a blue collar jail and she was ready to sing. Unfortunately, she says she forgot the words

The Times & Post They Should Be A-Changin

Bloggers Request:

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the Times & Post should be a-changin'.

Good Bye Sulzberger, Keller, Miller, and Woodward!

Fitzgerald's response:

Come politician's, journalists
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled

There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'.
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the convictions, they are a-comin'.

--Bob Dylan
Perhaps for Rove?
