All You Can Eat Pancakes...


What You See (in the Media) is Not What You Get (in the Libby Trial)

"In the wake of the first week of the Libby Trial, Patrick Fitzgerald's soufflé has turned into a pancake. Of course, if you are getting your news of the trial from the press you're certain to believe Libby is in trouble. Nothing could be further from the truth. The reporting is as bad as I've ever seen."

"With his own witnesses taking the air out of this thin case, the prosecutor's soufflé of an indictment has turned into a pancake when it came to trial." <

I wouldn't say it's a pancake, Clarisse, but I just read Jeralyn's TalkLeft site, and she bears out my impression that it is the defense who is taking down Judy. Jeralyn said that Judy "sailed through" Fitzgerald's questioning but began coming unglued when Wells and Jeffress started in on her. Some bloggers want you think that Fitz scores a knockout in every round and that the defense lawyers are just blithering idiots, but that is not being objective and could lead to some disappointment.

It's true that the defense lawyers are putting pressure on Judy. I suppose this is a planned tactic, since they have said they won't put Scooter on the stand. They will be able to wrap up the final arguments by claiming that they have shown that all witnesses have memory problems, and therefore the jury must accept that Scooter did, too.

Unfortunately for him and in spite of how Clarice wants to delude herself, the live report from FDL indicates that Scooter had many, many more conversations about Valerie Wilson, than anyone else who has testified so far.

If the trial ends right now, it has been well-established (beyond a shadow of a doubt) that Scooter did not first learn about Plame and her status from Russert on July 8, as he testified to investigators.

The Jury would have no choice but to find him guilty of perjury under oath.

P.S. Fitzmas, aka Faux Fitz, sorry to hear that your girlfriend broke up with you. Rest assured we love you and your parody blog.

Good job, Fitz and team today! I just read all in today's hearing. In a nutshell, Judy is in deep trouble. And yes, she is protecting someone. Yes,I think it is another government offical. The question is who did Miller meet with on May 23 or what was her schedule on May 23? and when did Miller get a security clearance card?

I'm not going to comment on gas queen Feldman. I had a busy and exhausting day. No time to read the toilet paper article! She can't even help the gnome Libby.

From Congressmen Henry Waxman's website:

Committee Holds Hearing on Political Influence on Government Climate Change Scientists

The Oversight Committee held a hearing on January 30 regarding political interference in the work of government climate change scientists. In preparation for the hearing, Chairman Waxman and Ranking Member Davis requested documents from the Council on Environmental Quality related to allegations that officials edited scientific reports and took other actions to minimize the significance of climate change.

From all the letters that were hand delivered to the 110th Congress (my letter was included) by Al Gore to put global warming a major issue, this tell you the power of the public. Go Waxman!

Good luck in court tomorrow, Fitz!

Biloximan out!

This was funny! :)

Fitz: There's no right to impeach on irrelevant issues. [going too fast] I'm sorry, I'll take a timeout. If [the war] is going to be tried in this trial, we've got to bring cots.

email of the day -

"I learned today that Libby actually testified before the grand jury that he discovered in his notes that the vice president was the first one to make him aware of Valerie Plame. It is incomprehensible that you can continue in your indictment of perjury against Libby knowing he made this testimony to the grand jury. The only reason you can still be pursuing this action is because you are more consumed by power than the people you accuse of abusing power.
I cannot fathom how you sleep at night! You are truly more dangerous than any crooked politician in Washington."

Hello, Angry E-Mailer...

You would have known that if you had read the original indictment.

The VP can tell Scooter whatever he wants, as long as they both treat classified information as classified.

Scooter is charged with lying to investigators about what he told the media, not what Cheney told him.

Some people still don't get it! *sigh*

Scooter isn't charged with leaking..he is charged with lying to investigators, obstruction of justice and perjury!

Good Evening JB's

Another busy day in DC-one day this week I will hunt down a certain Ohio Representative and give it to him good. And I'm not talkin' about a kiss.
Today two military moms met with him-he was so rude and disrespectful to them, they left in tears.
That jackboot licking snake will be in tears when I leave him...Oh but they respect military and their families HA He will write them a letter of apology or I will bring soldiers into his office with me to demand it.

Anyway, Judy, judy judy...heehee and Clarice you too, can always be counted on for a laugh. Apparently its the only job gals like that can get. Clarice do you sleep with your sources too? Geez what is it about republican women? They tell themselves they are superior to other women, thus the reason they get ahead. Yet they use the oldest trick in the book!

Dear Clarice (aka-neoskank) can't even offer a decent simile - though I suppose that speaks to her deficiencies as a creative thinker, not as a writer . . . still - she doesn't impress me . . . I think I'll ignore what Clarice has to say today . . . .
