Fun Fact re: WA State's New Gov Jay Inslee

It was at one of Jay's Town Hall's that Joe Wilson first publicly aspired to see Rove frog marched out of the White House.

It was August 2003. I was there and wrote about it-

...Jay Inslee put together a panel in his district to discuss Iraq and former ambassador Wilson was on it. Someone yelled out that they enjoyed him on the Daily Show -he said he had enjoyed doing it.

But my BIG news....One of the questions for him was about his wife and whether there is an investigation about that. He couched his answer in a hypothetical-

(I paraphrase until the last part)

"If that had happened and she isn't an agent, she would have much explaining to do to friends and business associates. It would be very inconvenient and could be seen as an intimidation of others who might speak in dissent toward the admin.

Were it true, lives could be put at risk. Were it true, there would be first an internal examination by the CIA- I assure you there are many professionals there that know what they are doing.

The FBI would then investigate- Even though Ashcroft is the AG, there are many professionals there as well. In that case, I would surely offer to be of any assistance to them that I could be.

Trust me when I say, nothing would please me more than seeing Karl Rove frog marched out of the White House in handcuffs -and when I use that name, I've measured my words"

The bold part is nearly verbatim -I wrote it down as soon as he said it. ROVE.


It took a long time for us to witness Rove's epic public humiliation. No handcuffs were involved but it was still quite enjoyable.

Jay was a great congressman and will be a wonderful governor.

1. I still feel strongly that until the traitors to the US

have been tried in a court of law, our country cannot heal from the wounds they caused.

We cannot continue to allow justice for some. That is essentially, justice for none and makes this a lawless nation.
