    the MSM coverage tonight? I watched Harball and KO, and no mention of the emails. Maybe it was discussed somewhere else, or the news came out too late?

      Bush and Cheney authorized the NIE leaks.

      This bit about Fitz having the proof that he committed Obstruction of Justice didn't come out until the very end of the day in an "obscure" sligthly off the beaten track, TruthOut (sorry Jason).

      Jason has broken so many stories on this that I have an almost statistically significant impression of the delay pipeline.  

      In one day, forieng blogs in Europe, especially Italy like Uruknet, in about two days this will be picked up by Murray Waas,  It will start running in some local and mirror into China, Africa, Then in about five days to a week it will hit the Washington Post of New York Times  and then have a 50% chance of making it to CNN in the follow 3 days.

      But that for the past.

      I think the Waas article and coverage on CNN today has blown this past the tipping point.  And all the delay times will rapidly shrink.

      All the MSM journalist, and politicians, now realize the Bush and Cheney are eventually going to go down.  And will therefore not be able to retaliate against this many people.

      So I wouldn't be surprised if we see folks falling over themselves to get out in front of this.

      By another two months, the majority of people will actually remember that they have known this all along and if you do a poll of who voted for Bush it will only be about 30% to 35%.

      Folks won't really be lying.  It's just a funny property of the human mind.

      I vaquely remember an article I read a long while aog, about people who claimed to have voted for Nixon or not.  

      Even though the real elections polls showed that Nixon won by a handy margin, when they did a poll of people who claimed to have voted in that election, only about 25% or so remembered that they did.  Some 50%+ or so remember voting for the Democrats.  I can't remeber what the others claimed.  Maybe that they couldn' remember.  

      I can't wait to see how the print media picks this up in the morning.

      I'm pretty sure Murray Waas and a bunch of other slighly more mainstream journalists have Jason Leopold on their alerts built in and read whatever he publishes.  I do.  

      So let's hope things go faster now
