Quote(s) of The Day...

by yours truly.

"You can't learn something startling on Thursday that you're giving out Monday and Tuesday of the same week," Fitzgerald said. "Day after day after day after day, he focused on this controversy." - Washington Post
and

“You can’t be startled about something on Thursday that you told other people about on Monday and Tuesday,” Mr. Fitzgerald said, referring to conversations Mr. Libby had only days before." - NY Times

If journalism is a snapshot of history, to paraphrase Ben Bradlee, then someone needs to clean their lens. ;)

Well that's exactly what Libby wants the jurors to believe. Look Bush has been lying and tricking Americans for 6 years so Libby is giving it that old college try. Wells is working with no cards. What's with the wife thing. Yes I know it was agreed not the say anything about Plame/Wilson for national security reasons. But let's face it the case is about her and the cover up of the leak. The fact that Libby lied under oath is beyond a reasonable doubt. I know the woman in this jury find it offensive with that wife remark. So some respect for Mrs. Wilson.
Oh before I forget great job today it was sweet. Wells better try something new or he'll sink Libby and his friends deeper in trouble.

Yes, all the more reason to let him continue saying it.

My previous post, I meant that in regard to other issues that might come up in the future .....

Tomorrow it'll be "Ms. Plame," is my bet.

Christy @FDL:

"Fitzgerald also used a very effective means of replaying the defendant's grand jury testimony with regard to the perjury counts —playing the actual tape of the defendant's voice as he testifed before the grand jury under oath. The jurors in the criminal trial were riveted as they listened to the defendant's voice, while they watched his reaction live in the courtroom as he was also hearing his testimony."


That had to make a big impression on them.

Hearing Libby's recorded words, and also seeing his reaction to hearing them.

(Coupled with Fitzgerald's reminder that they've all had a lifetime of sizing people up....)

Fitz did you misquote yourself heehee

Yes Jackie, and Wells bag of tricks is empty. I can't wait to see him keep looking for a defense strategy that doesn't exist. Fitz has him nailed at all four corners!
