The Fifth Horseman: Turdblossom testifies…again

Turdblossom testifies…again

Well, Karl Rove made his fourth appearancee before the Treasongate Grand Jury yesterday.

Is an indictment on the way? I hope so.

However, that's not nearly as interesting as this story. That's right, ladies and gentlemen, Treasongate has expanded. Not only are Rove and Scooter Libby under investigation, but now Dick Cheney himself is facing scrutiny.

That's right, The Dark Lord may be going to court sometime in the near future.

Unsurprisingly, all of this scrutiny has caused some tension among the Chickenhawks in the White House. The New York Times wrote about the mood in the Oval Office:
...the inquiry has swept up a dozen or more other officials who have been questioned by investigators or have testified before the grand jury, and, should it lead to the indictment of anyone at a senior level, it has the potential to upend the professional lives of everyone at the White House for the remainder of Mr. Bush's second term.

The result, say administration officials and friends and allies on the outside who speak regularly with them, is a mood of intense uncertainty in the White House that veers in some cases into fear of the personal and political consequences and anger at having been caught in the snare of a special prosecutor. And given how badly things have been going for Mr. Bush and his team on other fronts - a poll released Thursday by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center put his approval rating at 38 percent, a new low - they hardly have deep reserves of internal enthusiasm or external good will to draw on.

So, the Chickenhawks are sweating?

Good. This should be a lesson for them: crime doesn't pay. If you don't want to be prosecuted, then stop breaking the law. It's as simple as that.

Here's hoping that we actually see some justice doled out in the next few weeks.

Well, to wrap things up, I give you this. Watch's worth it.
