On impending indictments
Regular readers of this bashful blog may be wondering why I haven’t said anything about Valerie Plame or Judith Miller or Karl Rove or Scooter Libby or Count Novakula, King of the Undead. Well, that’s because this diffident blog doesn’t do much in the way of Beltway speculatin’. It’s learned from bitter experience that it’s not very good at speculatin’ and prognosticatin’, and it doesn’t like doing things it’s not very good at, especially in public. So I’m just sitting around in blogspace, waiting to see what Patrick Fitzgerald has in store for everyone. I’m hoping it’ll be broad and sweeping and utterly devastating. After all, the issue at hand does involve national security, nuclear proliferation, and the central rationale for war in Iraq—all of which are regarded by many people as being even more important than oral sex. Now, if only there were some way we could tie all of this to Richard Perle as well! That would be very pleasant.
I just want to add that I went to high school with Patrick Fitzgerald. Regis H.S., New York City, Class of 1978. Graduating class of about 105. I didn’t know him well, but still, I’m sitting around in blogspace cheering him on.
