21. Something is going on - a tangential firedoglake post kinda explains:
Edited on Tue Jun-20-06 04:24 PM by emulatorloo
Luskin et al are spinning like crazy -- they are hiding something . . .

Christy at firedoglake on another plamegate nasty:


Here is another truth: those of us outside the case can have no earthly way of knowing what exactly is going on inside (unless of course you are Murray Waas, who seems to be omniscient at times). But here is what I do know: the GOP spinmeisters are working overtime to get their side of the story cemented as the conventional wisdom on this case. Why, you ask?

Because something is going on that they do not want us to know about and I, for one, sure as hell want to know what that is.
(You want more on this, read this from EPU. Interesting, no?)

No one works that hard to suppress or downplay or manipulate public opinion unless there is a very good reason to do so. Here are a few: (1) Information that is bound to come out in testimony during the Libby trial is very damning, and they are trying to get out in front of it. (2) No one wants Dick Cheney under oath and on the stand in front of the public. (3) Karl Rove may not have an official deal, but he does have an obligation to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth on the stand or face perjury charges. And that is not something he wants to do under any circumstances. (See Number 2 above.) (4) The investigation is continuing, Fitzgerald is chipping away at the evidence, and the spinmeisters want to turn public opinion against him before he goes much further. (5) The WHIG is restless.well, you get the point.
