Friday Hope Blogging

What else?

Far better legal minds than mine will tease out all the implications of this indictment in days to come. But I did notice that it straightforwardly establishes Plame's identity as an undercover operative, and that the instances it cites of Libby's false statements - and the timeline it offers of the White House's machinations - are devastating to the current line of wingnut apologetics. There's blood in the water now...lots of it.

I have nothing else to offer this week, save for a couple of short quotes. From Shakespeare, for those who still believe this administration:

This tyrant, whole sole name blisters our tongues,
Was once thought honest; you have loved him well;
He hath not touched you yet.
And from Cornelius Nepos, for the rest of us:
Hateful is the power, and pitiable is the life, of those who wish to be feared rather than loved.

It strikes me that this could be the beginning of housecleaning, and that the vacuum cleaner has just been plugged in.

Hopeful Friday blogging indeed!
