Just kidding. We listened to Fitzgerald’s press conference live. As for the 10th Inning show on NPR: It’s odd to me how many people who have whiffed with every prediction they have made about this investigation persist in the desire to keep making predictions. (If you’ve missed every pitch you’ve swung at in this game, the pitcher may just be out of your league, slugger. Keep the bat on your shoulder and hope the next pitch is Fitzgerald’s metaphorical bean ball. You’ll get a black eye, but at least you’ll get to take your base.)
I don’t honestly have any idea what the Fitzgerald crew has stewing in their kitchen. They could be preparing to pack up and go home. I heard rumors on the radio, though, that Luskin was visiting Fitzgerald’s building all morning today, which may be part of the reason there was no Rove indictment, which means it ain’t over.
Fitzgerald’s refusal to speculate about the future is not a sign that Rove isn’t necessarily going to be indicted. It’s a sign that Fitzgerald’s M.O. doesn’t change. He didn’t tell us anything about what he was going to do before, either.
I think that there might be some pressure on Libby to talk about the conspiracy now that he’s facing a trial. I don’t think this is done. I don’t think Libby will ever be put on trial, either. 30 years in prison is a life sentence for a guy approaching 60. Libby is going to be wetting himself to find some way to help Fitzgerald now. I am thinking plea bargaining and aiding the “interest of the people” (I love it LOVE IT when Fitzgerald says that. It’s so Eliot Ness!) by giving evidence to support the indictment of Rove on conspiracy charges. That’s my Fitzmas wish…
Well, I went straight from posting this to firedoglake and Jane, Kevin Drum and Andrew Sullivan(?) and I all agree.
I feel like I am in strong company here. Then again, blind hog/acorn/etc/….
Well, don’t just sit there… COMMENT!
