73. Okay, my tinfoil hat is showing but...
I don't like this. My fear is that Smirk & Co. have covered their tracks so well that Ashcroft KNOWS no one high up in the administration is "touchable", and nothing will be found to implicate Rove or Cheney or Libby, etc.

Ashcroft also knows that if his office is the one to "discover" that no wrongdoing was found by senior officials, he will have no credibility whatsoever, hence, his quoted concern about "appearances".

So what does he do? He appoints someone with the nickname "Elliot Ness" to take over the investigation. Several prominent Dems (as well as Joe Wilson himself) come forward to vouch for Fitzgerald's impeccable character and assure us that this will be a fair, thorough, nonpartisan investigation.

Since the White House has had months to cover their tracks and erase the evidence, Fitzgerald's investigation will not implicate anyone of any consequence. If he nails anyone at all, it will be some low-level nobody and that will be the end of it. The Dems will cry foul, and the press will trot out all of their previous quotes praising Fitzgerald's record and character. The Repuke pundits will all say what a bunch of whiners we are, and Smirk will come out smelling like a rose.

Dang I hope I am just being paranoid here, but this whole thing reeks of a setup to me. I just can't believe that this administration would allow a real investigation to take place unless they know they are untouchable. I sure hope I'm wrong.

P.S. Good to see you again, Will!
