What with bogus indictments, regurgitated Plame kerfuffles, false charges about hurricane responses and alleged rightwing anger over certain Supreme Court nominations, you'd be in large company if you thought the GOP was down on its luck...but, as in most group-think, you'd also be wrong. Grasp that fact - we're the political top dogs in the United States. It is important to remember this because it puts things into perspective - we don't have to claw our way into power anymore.Looks like somebody is still wearing the blinders, the rose-colored glasses and drinking the Kool-Aid. Although it appears that the Kool-Aid might be spiked with something extra, maybe a little LSD? He'd have to be on something to think that everything is hunky-dorey right now. Especially if anything comes of this late-breaking news:
Federal prosecutors have accepted an offer from presidential adviser Karl Rove to give 11th hour testimony in the case of a CIA officer's leaked identity and have warned they cannot guarantee he won't be indicted, according to people directly familiar with the investigation.
The people, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because of grand jury secrecy, said Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has not made any decision yet on whether to file criminal charges against the longtime confidant of President Bush or anyone else.
The U.S. attorney's manual requires that prosecutors not bring witnesses before a grand jury if there is a possibility of future criminal charges unless the witnesses are notified in advance that their testimony can be used against them in a later indictment.
Rove has already made at least three grand jury appearances and his return at this late stage in the investigation is unusual.
