1. This Debra Orin character from the NY Post is spinning like mad.
It is fun to see people trying to plug the leaks in the dam.

Anyone got some popcorn?

4. Since she refused to answer his question.
So Tweety took the time to make a few more points.

2. Tweety's acting like he really wants to get to the bottom of this.
It's weird.

And then I remind myself that he knows way more than he's saying. I think he knows the jig is up bigtime.

3. Tweety knows it's another WATERGATE
Tweety badly needs something to catch fire in his career.

He realizes he's missed his shot at moving up at NBC, passed over, so now he's looking for that rocket ride that a big case can bring.

8. He sure does! Check out his blog:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5445086 /

There's something big coming in this city (Chris Matthews)

It's serious business.

It all begins with a big fight between the CIA and the White House, especially the vice president's office. Scooter Libby, his chief of staff, is also his WMD expert.

The vice president has made the case for war very effectively on programs like 'Meet the Press,' that we had to go to war with Saddam Hussein because he possessed the potential to make nuclear war against the United States - to somehow deliver a nuclear weapon to this country.

For a lot of people, that was the deal maker for the war. They had a lot of problems invading a third-world country, but they said 'Well, if he has a nuclear program over there that is threatening us, we have to act.'

9. I think so too. The blood is in the water and he has been on of the only
places you can go to and see what is going on in the leak case on TV. Besides him you have to read articles. Maybe by it being on his show the average Joe will start picking up on the story.

5. Why are you watching that imbecile?
I really don't give a rats ass about what Chris Matthews has to say about anything.

I caught about 2 minutes of his show yesterday and all I could do was laugh. He's in this Plame outing up to his eyeballs and all he ever says about it is repeating what he's being told to say by his masters.

If I ever met him on the street, I would spit at him. He's a total tool.

6. When will Tweety come clean about HIS role, and what he knows?
He acts like he is an impartial observer, but he is in this up to his eyeballs...Tweety got a "Wilson's wife is FAIR GAME" phone call:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8445696/site/newsweek / In early October 2003, NEWSWEEK reported that immediately after Novak's column appeared in July, Rove called MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews and told him that Wilson's wife was "fair game." But White House spokesman Scott McClellan told reporters at the time that any suggestion that Rove had played a role in outing Plame was "totally ridiculous." On Oct. 10, McClellan was asked directly if Rove and two other White House aides had ever discussed Valerie Plame with any reporters. McClellan said he had spoken with all three, and "those individuals assured me they were not involved in this."

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/3129861/site/newsweek/page/3 /
Wilsons comments clearly implied that he knew that Rove was the leaker, but last week Wilson backtracked, saying only that he knew that Rove had condoned the leak. Whoever initially leaked Plames name, the White House clearly had a hand in fanning the flames. Wilson told NEWSWEEK that in the days after the Novak story appeared, he got calls from several well-connected Washington reporters. One was NBC correspondent Andrea Mitchell. She told NEWSWEEK that she said to Wilson: I heard in the White House that people were touting the Novak column and that that was the real story. The next day Wilson got a call from Chris Matthews, host of the MSNBC show Hardball. According to a source close to Wilson, Matthews said, I just got off the phone with Karl Rove, who said your wife was fair game. (Matthews told NEWSWEEK: Im not going to talk about off-the-record conversations.)

The White House spokesman dismissed as ridiculous the charge that Rove outed Plame. A source familiar with Roves conversation acknowledged that Rove spoke to Matthews a few days after Novaks column appeared, but said that Rove never told Matthews that Wilsons wife was fair gamerather, that it was reasonable to discuss who sent Wilson to Niger. Novak wrote last week that the leaker was no partisan gunslinger. That suggests that the original leak came from someone in the White House national-security apparatus, which holds itself above politics. Many White House staffers are potential suspects, but various press reports have suggested that the Feds will want to interview I. Lewis (Scooter) Libby, Vice President Cheneys chief of staff, an aggressive consumer of intelligence regarded by some CIA analysts as an intimidating figure.

14. What is this Republican strategist smoking?
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 04:41 PM by RSchewe
He thinks nothing will happen in the leak case. That no report means no indictment.

17. Yeah, that goes for all of the media. Well, unfortunately we gotta
use that lame phrase, "better late than never". Let's hope the coverage the story is getting now is getting through to people.
