The Muhammad Naeem Noor Khan connection to the London bombings and the possibility that the Bush administration blew the cover of a double agent connected to the London attacks has temporarily pushed aside the Plame/Rove debate and is currently getting the blog equivalent of the full-court press from the left-wing of the debate.
Mahablog has a pretty decent (albeit by now out of date) rundown of reactions from the left.
I, as always, cowardly suspend final judgement and issue the usual terse statement: “If this is true, something should hit the fan.”
Maha is also not buying the latest turn of events regarding Plame/Rove/Novak.
Nothing will hit the fan. To most of the modern Right, Bush is more important than the country. Nothing and noone will be spared to protect the perception of the God-like W.
Welcome to the new USSR.
Maha is talking about an indictment of someone…
It would have to be for lying to a grand jury. But hey! We all know that lying to a grand jury is nothing to get excited about. At least, that’s what we were led to believe a few years ago.
“Welcome to the new USSR.”
Yeah, the similarities are really eerie.
I’d say, welcome back to the Nixon administration is far more accurate. Those parallels, especially regarding the Plame Case (as compared to Watergate) are really eerie.
I think the second impeachment of a President in American history is rather a big deal, but let’s not let facts interfere with the relentless dead horse thrashing.
There’s one rather large difference. During the Watergate era, there were ethical Republicans who put the country ahead of their party. Sadly, that is not the case today.
