  •  Fascinating stuff. (4.00)
    Although Matalin left the White House more than six months before the leak that triggered the Valerie Plame scandal, she is reported to have testified before the grand jury of Independent Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald. (Notes and records of WHIG meetings were subpoenaed by Fitzgerald in January 2004.) -- Wikipedia
    •  Here's a post with the WSJ text (4.00)
      You can read much of tomorrow's article here. The remark about WHIG is (somewhat) in passing.  

      "[I]n all due respect to your profession [journalism], you do a very good job of protecting the leakers." -- Bush on Oct 7, 2003

      is Card has flipped (or will) as well. Note, this is just my opinion, but he never seemed like a real insider: he once publicly bemoaned Karen Hughes' departure because it would leave Rove in control, and he is the author of the famous "you don't introduce a new product in August" line. These statements suggest to me that he isn't close or deeply committed to the Neocon mission-- and probably not eager to go to jail for it.

      Somewhere around 2001, Mr. Spock grew a beard.
