Gap in the time line

Underreported story of the weekend is the bombshell Al Gonzales dropped on Treasongate during an interview yesterday.
Gonzales told Bob Schieffer on the CBS show “Face the Nation” that he had been given permission by the Justice Department to hold off overnight if he saw fit, which he did. But he did tell one man that night: Chief of Staff Andrew Card.
Card was the Chief of Staff at that point in time. Twelve hours is a long time for damage control. Quite the unexpected admission. The response however, was predictable.
The White House did not respond to questions Sunday about whether Card passed that information to top Bush aide Karl Rove or anyone else, giving them advance notice to prepare for the investigation.
This gives the Frank Rich theory on why Gonzales got passed over for the SCOTUS nomination, a lot more impetus.

Adding to the evidence, the Dems have put up a Treasongate clock and a nifty little time line of their own.

It appears the burden of proof is finally starting to shift to where it belongs - right on the doorstep of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

TREASONGATE??? Not to be too blatant with my amusement here, but what adolescent came up with that particular handle?

And while we're at it, exactly what act of "treason" is being discussed here? Or is the left merely flapping its collective gums again?

Bat! How sweet of you to come to visit.

I don't know who invented the phrase, but it wasn't this adolescent. It was one of those wayward teenagers in the main media. I think I maybe saw it for the first time at that bastion of frat boy mentality, Editor & Publisher.

I liked it the best of all the ones I've seen. It has a nice ring to it.

So good to see you. Please do stop by again.
