I'm on deadline for a book at work, so I'll have to keep it short tonight. I found it interesting on this morning's talking heads shows that the overriding opinion was that this week's developments from the special counsel were unfortunate for Scooter Libby but could potentially blow over for the rest of the Bush Administration. And if anybody's resting easy today, it's Karl Rove. I'll have to get a pair of those rose-colored glasses. It's too bad that they don't populate those shows with a broader range of political views so that we don't just have to listen to administration shills and right-leaning moderates. I'm already on the record with my opinion that Fitzgerald's just beginning, but if you don't want to take my word for it, there's a whole lot of other bloggers making the same argument. (I don't have time to look up the links at the moment, but you can find many of them in the blogroll over there on the right).
And since it's Sunday, here's the requisite Frank Rich link, in which he touches on that idea, as well. Here's the first paragraph of "One Step Closer to the Big Enchilada":
To believe that the Bush-Cheney scandals will be behind us anytime soon you'd have to believe that the Nixon-Agnew scandals peaked when G. Gordon Liddy and his bumbling band were nailed for the Watergate break-in. But Watergate played out for nearly two years after the gang that burglarized Democratic headquarters was indicted by a federal grand jury; it even dragged on for more than a year after Nixon took "responsibility" for the scandal, sacrificed his two top aides and weathered the indictments of two first-term cabinet members. In those ensuing months, America would come to see that the original petty crime was merely the leading edge of thematically related but wildly disparate abuses of power that Nixon's attorney general, John Mitchell, would name "the White House horrors."
