Saw this one coming

Remember the big Valerie Plame deal? The whole "did they or didn't they" as to whether or not the GDub administration leaked her name to the press? The threat that anyone found guilty of actually leaking her name would be summarily fired?

Okay, how about the "Scooter" Libby mess, at least the recent one, where he was convicted of lying and obstruction of justice, only to have his sentence commuted because it was just a little more than the slap on the wrist that the administration believed it should be? And yet, through it all, the allegations regarding the actual leak were denied time and again.

Until today, when GDub admitted that someone kinda maybe let the information get out, perhaps in a less-than-honest way. Of course, no names were mentioned, and, on the subject of Libby, he defended his position (and, we're positive, the more-than-probable pardon looming around the corner), calling it "fair and balanced".

Wait. "Fair and balanced" That sounds familiar... like we've heard it before. And, well, the last group to use the term "fair and balanced" regularly also thinks that Ann Coulter is a viable interview candidate, even if she does make Sean Hannity look like Ralph Nader (and Rosie O'Donnell look like Audrey Hepburn).

Well now we can most certainly put this whole mess behind us. Perhaps, in the upcoming days, we'll hear other things that the administration wants to start admitting. We suggest starting small, with things like Laura not actually having a hand in the decoration offor the White House, and slowly working up to the administration's overall contempt for the wishes of the American people.
