Corrupt cronies circle the wagons

Speaking of our supreme news aggregator Froomkin, he has a kick butt column in today's WaPo that shows Harris how it should be done.

Right off the top we learn that Bush came out on national television and proclaimed Tom DeLay innocent. Not to mention he bolstered all the other indicted criminals in his party and proclaimed the new Brownie is - Heckuva job Rummy.

So Bush can't answer specific questions about the ongoing investigations into his White House staff and other corrupt cronies but he can go on national TV and proclaim them generally good old boys and probably innocent? Can anything be more prejudicial to the prosecution of these cases?

Meanwhile, Dan catches this bombshell that the The Raleigh News & Observer dropped into cyberspace yesterday.

Newspaper columnist Robert Novak is still not naming his source in the Valerie Plame affair, but he says he is pretty sure the name is no mystery to President Bush.

"I'm confident the president knows who the source is," Novak told a luncheon audience at the John Locke Foundation in Raleigh on Tuesday. "I'd be amazed if he doesn't. So I say, 'Don't bug me. Don't bug Bob Woodward. Bug the president as to whether he should reveal who the source is.' "

Why haven't we impeached Bush yet? Dan has the polls showing 39% of the country believes he should be in contrast to the 26% that thought Clinton deserved that fate during the height of Monicagate.

So Bush told Woodward, and Woodward told Novak? And told Novak who had told him?

You heard it here first.

Beats me Hubris but it sure makes the Plame case even more interesting. Also just got a hot tip on my discussion list that Novak is about to "resign" from CNN. Unconfirmed so far.
