Stress Boils Predicted

Anybody with the least little bit of a bullshit detector has suspected from get-go that Bush was behind the Valerie Plame leak. It's just his frat-boy asshole style.:"Let's make Wilson sound like girly-man, whose wife gets him jobs."

And of course his denials of involvement were as pure Dog Ate My Homework as anything ever put on television. Now we can put up there with his father's "I was out of the loop on Iran-Contra," and Bill Clinton's "I did not have sex with that woman," this moment: “I want to know the truth. … I have no idea whether we’ll find out who the leaker is, partially because, in all due respect to your profession, you do a very good job of protecting the leakers.”

It seems Scooter has sworn that Cheney told him that Bush authorized the Plame leak. Now, if there is a God, Cheney will someday have to testify that A. Libby is lying, or B. Bush did authorize the leak. The first choice may open a great many other cans of worms for Cheney; the second is equally problematical. If Bush denies it, then Cheney himself may be prosecutable -- for he lacks the authority to declassify the leaked material.

I predict some stress boils coming on.
