the sound of silence

Just spoke with good friend and fellow blogger, awol, who dropped this line on me vis a vis Fitz:

"Perhaps the most effective use of silence in U.S. politics in living memory."

To which I replied: "I hope Fitz is no Chauncey Gardner."

(Of course, there's no doubt, he isn't, and, further, this article seems a pretty big deal to me.)

    Sweet dreams, and fingers crossed...if you wake up at 7 on the West Coast it may be over already...lol.

    peace.

  • Not til 11am EDT I learned when I woke to work at 4 am PDT. LOL here too. I fear life will go on, more like the present than not.

  • Announcements at 2pm EST, so you'll be able to watch it over an early lunch. I am working from my home office today so I'm going to be essentially useless (implying that I am not useless at other times!) from 2pm on. At least it's Friday.

    OT - I caught your diary at Daily Kos on the Tim Kaine issue. I had been putting together a post for my blog on the same subject having seen this stuff kind of evolve - I gave you a big shout-out at the end of my post because you pulled everything together for me in one place.

  • "We're in the midst of an ongoing investigation, and I will be more than happy to comment further once the investigation is completed."

    Poor fella. We all know how much he's been itching to speak with the press about this matter. And yet, if the latest rumors pan out (I used to call such reports "news"), Libby will be indicted but the investigation into Rove will remain frustratingly incomplete.

    Alas! I don't imagine a partially-completed investigation is quite what Bush had in mind. As much as he'd like to lay it all out for us, our intrepid promise keeper will probably be forced to maintain silence.

    It's such a pity. With all the bad news he's been getting lately, I really wanted today to be the day that made Bush "more than happy."
