The Fifth Horseman: Take heart citizens...

Take heart citizens...

..for our brave media seems to be rallying and jumping back into coverage of the Karl Rove Scandal.

Although coverage dropped sharply on Tuesday when Bush announced his nominee, it seems that coverage of the Karl Rove scandal has been picking up again.

In other words: the media refuses to be distracted by cheap ploys of distraction.

Not only has the media continued to cover the story, they have uncovered several new bits of information, all of which make Karl Rove's situation even more dire.

Wednesday: The Wall Street Journal reports that the memo "made clear" that the information was "sensitive and shouldn't be shared."

Thursday: The Washington Post reports that the paragraph about Plame was "marked 'S' for secret." This story is repeated on CBS Evening News and CNN.

Late Thursday night: John Harwood , of the Wall Street Journal, revealed on MSNBC that the entire memo was classified “top secret” and the section about Plame was marked “SNF” for “Secret, No Foreign” meaning, don’t share with any foreign intelligence service.

Also, some evidence was offered on last night's Bloomberg News Report that Karl Rove committed perjury

According to Bloomberg, Rove told the special counsel that he first heard Plame’s name from Bob Novak, but Novak “has given a somewhat different version”.

And Cheney’s chief of staff Scooter Libby told the special counsel he first heard it from NBC’s Tim Russert, but Russert says he did not tell Libby her identity.

This is huge.If proven true, this would mean that Karl Rove and Scooter Libby commited perjury, a felony offense.

What does all of this add up to mean: Bad news for Karl Rove and the Evil Empire; and good news for all of us principled left-wingers.

Here's my message for Karl Rove: Whatever you do, don't drop the soap in the prison showers.
