Let the Frog March Begin
07.02.2005 08:43 | DISPATCHES
From the Dossier of an Ex-Patriot.
Editor & Publisher reported yesterday that Lawrence O'Donnell, senior MSNBC political analyst, stated on John McLaughlin's show that Karl Rove will be named as the Valerie Plame source in the "document dump that Time magazine's going to do with the grand jury."
Plame-flame Joseph Wilson famously called for Rove to be "frog-marched" out of the White House. By classical definition, this involves two to four people seizing a limb and carrying the offending party off face down, like a frog caught mid-flight.
By all rights, it should end in tarring and feathering. What about perjury charges? The Ex-Patriot can dream, can't he?
Worst case scenario (aside from no charges)? He's replaced by the one whose relation to him is still the subject of much speculation: Jeff Gannon. Can you spell "conduit"?
Since this dispatch was filed, Newsweek has confirmed the story. Might be all over, Rover, for Good Dog Karl (know that children's book?).
