Much more than Rove v. Wilson
A couple of people recommended Justin Raimando's Friday article to me on double super secret background (well, okay, it was Michelle and Mike). Raimando suggests that Rove v. Wilson is merely the opening sideshow to the main event--that prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is on the trail of something much bigger, leading perhaps to making a criminal case out of the whole Bush-Cheney-neocon lies and deceptions which got us into the war in Iraq:
Treason is nothing to these people, because their real allegiance is not to the U.S., but to their own cause, which is perpetual war.And if that happens, and maybe a little more, I hope that President Hastert will nominate Fitzgerald to the Supreme Court as a reward for saving this country (and probably several others). (Yeah, I know "President Hastert" doesn't sound very encouraging, but it beats "President Bush" or "President Cheney," or, God forbid, the fourth-in-line "President Rice.")
The fast developing scandal seemingly centered around Rove and a few journalists has only begun to unfold. By the time it is over, we'll have the War Party – or, at the very least, a few high profile representatives – in the dock, and then the fun will really begin. So forget "Rove-gate" and get ready for "Cheney-gate." I'll gladly forgo the pleasure of seeing the president's chief political advisor frog-marched out of the White House for the prospect of seeing our vice president, along with his top staffers, led out of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in handcuffs.
