GK's weekend update

The Green Knight's Holiday Weekend post has four items of interest, in particular, a pair of links related to the Valerie Plame outing and the Downing Street Memo.

MSNBC Lawrence O'Donnell has claimed that Karl Rove is the unidentified source and, naturally, Rove's lawyer has wasted no time statng that Rove did nothing wrong and that while he did speak to Time Magazine's Matt Cooper back in July 2003, he did not leak Plame's name.

Yeah, mmmmm hmmm.

Meanwhile, Tony Blair has now confirmed the authenticity of the Downing Street Minutes and Rep. Conyers and 51 other members of Congress have now "submitted a broad and comprehensive FOIA request to the White House, the Department of Defense, and the Department of State seeking any and all documents and materials concerning the Downing Street Minutes and the lead up to the Iraq war, RAW STORY has learned."

What with the Supreme Court nominations battle getting ready to heat up, it looks like it is going to be another weird and wacky week here in the United States of Surreality, once again. Jaded much?

Ummm.... I can only speak for myself and say, yes. With every passing day, it seems as though we are the unfortunate recipients of some new and repugnant comfirmation that we are on the fast track to hell; scandalous information rises up from some dank and dirty cesspool in Washington and yet the vast majority of it fails to register with the mainstream media. Maybe it really is starting to turn around, but it is utterly demoralizing that it has taken this long for any one of the several scandalously newsworthy stories to get any serious attention in the media.
