  •  The really sick aspect... (4.00)
    is that they're still at it.  Where are the constant daily stories - the relentless pressure that these sorts of revelations should engender in a civilized society??  We had about three days of it in July and then the White House's stonewalling seemed to take effect and, for the most part, the attention is no longer there.  Everyone has lawyered up, except for a few chosen leaks.

    The point is that everyone knows that Rove and Libby outed Ms. Wilson and nothing has happened because of it.  No one has been held accountable.

    The list of culpability in the media for the media 'conspiracy of silence' is long.  They aren't elected officials, but they deserve accountability as well.  The "lesson" of Watergate was that "the system worked."  Is the system going to work now?  What is the position of the Fourth Estate?  My fear is that, even if Fitz indicts, the Rovian slime machine will then be unleashed and the media will go along...

    Let justice reign though the heavens tremble
