13. To us it does...
but even with all the reports in the news about Rove, I don't hear anyone talking about impeaching Shrub. I think with the DSM, we had that.

I understand Plame and DSM are basically one and the same but to the average U.S. citizen, I don't think they get that.

17. That's a laugh. We could not get any "star" Dems to even touch it.
Sure- Kerry "wrote a letter" and I think Dean mentioned it once on TV.

6. Why do people keep saying October?
It may have even been you who I read a post on that earlier today. Was there some news about this that I missed?

On the 16th, I believe.

2. it won't fizzle.
Unfortunately for them, all the talk radio and all the talking points and all the spin in the world probably won't mean a damn to a prosecutor, who, even though Repub, is probably in the 71% who don't like this sort of thing and no doubt is ambitious.

4. There was a thread posted today that there is some
question as to whether the prosecutor, Fitzgerald, is even a repug. He's rabidly apolitical, so good for us! I'll try to dig up that thread...

10. It might take a back-burner when the blivet
announces his Supreme Court noms, but Fitzgerald has some info we will share soon.
In the meantime, look forward to distraction on a major scale. Even now, this Plame story is shifting attention from Iraq, which is/has been appalling recently.

11. Check out all the Cable News Channels during prime time ...
Let's see: 1) Sharks still bite; 2) That adult woman Natalie Holloway is beautiful and blond BUT still missing; 3) New stories of missing children .... and way way down the list = that little Rove situation that will not get him into any legal troubles <wink wink>. Followed by lies, lies and more Republican Talking point LIES about Ambassador Joe Wilson and his wife.

We have no INDEPENDENT media on Cable TV or the major broadcast channels. Until we do get a semblance of a "free press" the sheeple will be led by the nose through sensational stories and meaningless star spangled blather.

18. Who is stopping Dean, Kerry, Hillary from continuing to speak up on it?
Edited on Mon Jul-18-05 08:40 PM by Dr Fate
Oh- that's right- Wolf Blitzer will send them anthrax if they discuss issues the base cares about.
