    I agree the roots connected is a veiled attempt at saying she's connected to everything the administration is implicated in. To never forget that.

    Also, here's a wild theory,

    Aspen -> known for its skiing -> term for doing coke.
    Miller's a cokehead. A secret which they could easily exploit if necessary.

    •  "They turn in clusters" (4.00)
      I think the operative word is "turn", as in "flip". Obviously, as soon as one of the "21 Administration Officials Involved In Plame Leak" starts plea bargaining, others will be forced to either implicate or be implicated.

      Is Scooter warning Judy not to start this chain reaction, or confiding that he himself is "turning" and suggesting a scenario whereby his and Judy's self-preservation interests might be linked?

      I agree that lack of fresh news is causing us to getting into all this conspiracy theory nonsense, and that if it weren't this, it would be something else, but the fact remains that this is very weird letter and that our access to its contents is the result of an intentional leak by someone in the Bush Adminstration.

      To me the most interesting question is why this stuff was leaked to the conservative PowerLine blog? Is it part of a coordinated spin to protect the whole Adminstration or is it a sign of civil war? Imagine Cheney & Rove squaring off against each other in a neocon Celebrity Deathmatch!

      Another question: who is the target reader for this leaked letter?

      •  A good suggestion! (none)
        This is one of the best suggestions in the thread.  There are rumours of a Bush/Cheney feud, and certainly Cheney has been all but invisible lately.   (Fuck yourself moment aside.)   Perhaps Rove/Bush are about to turn on Cheney/Liddy.   (Great image:  Pinnocio biting Jeppeto in the ass!  Someone photoshop this, and remember that Pinnocio looks like Alfred E. Neuman.)    

        One thing is obvious to me from the letter:   Liddy is reminding Miller to stick by a planned "cover story."   I definitely think the turning/connected by their roots comment is a warning, not a threat or reassurance.   Key word is "They," which is very excluding, not including, as opposed to  "Aspens are connected by their roots"--which would be encouraging and inclusive.
