Indictment Party at My House!

I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve! I’m going to wake up tomorrow and ask: "Did Fitzgerald come? Did he bring me a Scooter? How about a Cheney? Oh boy, I hope it’s a Cheney!"

Hey, they wanted Infinite Justice didn't they?

A terrific article in Salon today talks about the greater implications of the investigation. Remember, leaking Valerie Plame's name was tantamount to a death threat, a Godfather-style tactic to intimidate Wilson into keeping his mouth shut about real evidence AGAINST going to war in Iraq. If they get perjury or obstruction of justice, they are getting off easy. If Clinton did it, we'd be hearing words like treason.

But I think David Letterman said it best: “The real crime is that there's an adult man walking around in the current administration named Scooter."

"If Fitzgerald hands down indictments, Washington will face a political upheaval not seen since the Clinton impeachment. But that will not be the only, or even necessarily the most important, effect of Fitzgerald's decisions. The resulting criminal process could also, for the first time, throw open the doors on the inner workings of the White House during one of the most controversial periods of recent American history. After 22 months of investigation, Fitzgerald, a Chicago-based prosecutor, may know more about the internecine battles that led to the outing of Valerie Plame than even the most well-connected intelligence wonks."
