Condi Pushed the "Wilson's wife sent him story"?
From Talking Points Memo:

Transcript of press gaggle in africa:

Q Dr. Rice, when did you all find out that the documents were forged?
DR. RICE: Sometime in March, I believe. Is that right?
MR. FLEISCHER: The IAEA reported it.
DR. RICE: The IAEA reported it I believe in March. But I will tell you that, for instance, on Ambassador Wilson's going out to Niger, I learned of that when I was sitting on whatever TV show it was, because that mission was not known to anybody in the White House. And you should ask the Agency at what level it was known in the Agency.
Q When was that TV show, when you learned about it?
DR. RICE: A month ago, about a month ago.
Q Can I ask you about something else?
DR. RICE: Yes. Are you sure you're through with this?

*** Are you sure you're through with this? ****

Look out Condi.. the tornado is going to sweep you up real soon and you had better pray for some golden slippers

1. I think you meant "ruby slippers," although "golden slippers"

3. Ruby Slippers! of course
GWB is the Tin Man ("if I only has a brain")

Rove is the scare crow ("if I only had a heart") Ha!

Who would the witch be, Karen Hughes?

We all know who the flying monkeys are!

8. In the book, it was Silver Slippers...
...but the director thought Ruby slippers would look better on the screen.

This has been another useless pop-culture fact, brought to you by Dr. Fate.

10. I had read that somewhere, but had forgotten it. I think the
director made the right decision. Thanks for the reminder.

5. The MSM rarely reports that those documents were forged
and that the Bushies may have had something
to do with that also.

6. Its twue, its twue.
I really hope that this Roberts guy truly is humble and honest, then I don't care how conservative he is. His duty is to the country, not a political party or religious cult.

The real issue was and remains the d'affair Plame and the conspiracy within the White House to destroy an honorable man and woman for a temporary gain in political control. If we let ourselves be distracted by Roberts, Rove and Rice have succeeded again.

9. You dont hear too many Democrats asking "Who forged them & why?" either
But it does need to be asked- over & over & over.

11. Hence the attacks on Wilson...
If they can make the story stop by throwing Karl overboard, that's exactly what they'll do.
