With the World Series scheduled to begin on Saturday, and hurricane Wilma set to hit the west coast of Florida on Sunday, the best time for prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald to hand down indictments in the CIA leak case would be... hmmmm, Monday. It will be a slow news day and Fitzgerald would get prime exposure. Well, that's assuming the supine mainstream press decides to cover it and if Wilma doesn't do much damage to the Treasure Coast.
I can see Brian Williams now, "reporting from Ft. Meyers, Florida, where a couple of mobile home parks are closed today by FEMA for damage assessment. Wilma didn't hit here, but FEMA officials thought maybe the bird flu might have snuck in on the winds. In Washington, the President, Vice President, Scooter Libby, Karl Rove, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, Judy Miller, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Tim Russert, Katie Couric, Tom Cruz, Michael Chertoff and the entire Navy Marching Band have been indicted for conspiracy to commit treason. Donald Rumsfeld will be sworn in as president on Tuesday. John Bolton is rumored to be named Secretary of State."
"Now back to our studios in New York for important news on the World Series and our special 'Bringing the War Home' series on a man who has installed anti-tank guns on his roof in rural Oshkosh."
Yeah, I'm dreaming. But Fitzgerald will be handing down indictments shortly. My wish list is: Karl Rove, Libby, Rice, Powell (no bad act should go unpunished), Dick Cheney.
I would be happy to see those five be indicted. Any more, I'll be dancing in the street 'til dawn. If Cheney isn't included, I'll live. But please, please, get Condi on the list.
Monday, Monday, Washington, D.C....
