The Gross National Debt

Tuesday, October 25, 2005

I have nothing of any super import today - no great tomes, no rants, no reflections. But it's been a big news day, I think, and I'll round it up a little here just to make note of it for my blog record.

From the rumor mill - The Washington Note has this to say about Fitzmas:

Indictments Coming Tomorrow; Targets Received Letters Today

An uber-insider source has just reported the following to TWN:

  1. 1-5 indictments are being issued. The source feels that it will be towards the higher end.
  2. The targets of indictment have already received their letters.
  3. The indictments will be sealed indictments and "filed" tomorrow.
  4. A press conference is being scheduled for Thursday.

The shoe is dropping.

More soon.

There have been some excellent diaries posted in the last two days about Fitzmas that are worth a look:

Fitzmas-related diaries:

The New York Times also ran an excellent article catching Cheney and Scooter Libby in their own web of lies - Cheney Told Aide of C.I.A. Officer, Lawyers Report. You already knew that, you say? Well think back a little farther - Cheney is on record saying that he didn't know where the name came from. Libby is presumably on record saying that he got Plame's name from a reporter. This article essentially outs correspondence and notes that show that Cheney gave Libby the name, and knew who Plame was a full month before Novak's article officially outed her to the public. This isn't a lie about a blowjob - this is a lie that outed a covert CIA agent and put a host of other agents and a carefully cultivated years-long cover in the open. Further, it's not just about the leak. It's about the fact that the leak occurred to ensure that the WHIG's carefully crafted "war marketing campaign" wasn't obfuscated by something as pesky as the truth. I can feel the impeachment coming.

Also in the news, civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks died at her home last night. She was 92. To me, she epitomized and will continue to epitomize what it means to be a true patriot - someone who sees injustice and is willing to put his/her life on the line to ensure it is corrected.

In yet another bafflingly arrogant move, Bush is refusing to hand over documents related to the SCOTUS nomination of Harriet Miers. There are times when I almost feel sorry for Miers - her personal views aside (whatever those are), she is likely an accomplished and professional woman who is being painted as a person of marginal intelligence with some kind of Bush-adoration complex. The latter may be true, but I doubt very much the former. Don't get me wrong - I couldn't disagree more with her based on my impressions of where she stands on key privacy and abortion issues and I DO NOT want her as a SCOTUS justice - but realistically speaking, had Bush handled this even slightly better than he has, he could have saved her reputation somewhat. But I guess she gets what she deserves for being such an unabashed Bush-lover, a strike against her in my book if ever there was one.

That's all I have, at least for today if no new news breaks. What's catching YOUR attention today??
