Turd Blossom, your days are numbered:

Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin, was informed via a target letter that Fitzgerald is prepared to charge Rove for perjury and lying to investigators during Rove’s appearances before the grand jury in 2004 and in interviews with investigators in 2003 when he was asked how and when he discovered that Valerie Plame Wilson worked for the CIA, and whether he shared that information with the media…

As of Friday afternoon, sources close to the case said, it appeared likely that charges of obstruction of justice would be added to the prepared list of charges.
I love, as reported in the linked story, that after being busted lying like an optimistic rug about having shared information about Plame Wilson’s covert status only after reading a July 2003 news story, which has been contradicted by evidence uncovered in the course of the investigation, Rove then provided the explanation that “he was dealing with more urgent White House matters and therefore forgot.” Riiiiiight. Like there’s ever anything more urgent in the Bush White House than playing dirty politics.

What a hubristic wanker Rove is. As though anyone with two brain cells still knocking together, no less an intelligent professional investigator like Fitzgerald, would just accept—and believe!—such a pathetic excuse for such unjustifiable behavior. The thing is, to understand why Rove believes he can get away with such absurd nonsense, one need look no further than Misty’s earlier post. Rove is one of the key architects of an administration which has disobeyed more than 750 laws enacted since he took office. (Which is to say nothing of laws that were in place before their criminal asses ever got there, some of which have likely been broken, too.) Is it any wonder that they feel they can say any kind of fantastical horseshit and be believed? That’s all they’ve been doing for five long years.

Finally, they’re hitting a wall—and it’s got the name Patrick Fitzgerald scrawled all over it. Go, Fitzy, go!
